President J. A. Gates called the Convention to order at

session, and they were approved. 

After singing ''My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less," Hight 
C. Moore presented the following resolutions, which, on mo- 
tion of I. X. Loftin, and after being discussed by C. S. Black- 
well, J. F. Love, and amended by B. C. Hening, were unani- 
mously adopted by a rising vote: 

Representing the Executive Board of the Baptist General Conven- 
tion of Texas and the Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist 
Convention, Kev. J. B. Gambrell, D.D., of Dallas, Texas, went to San 
Antonio last summer to see General Frederick Funston, the ranking 
officer of the United States Army on the Mexican border, in order to 
arrange for evangelistic preaching by some of our ablest and best 
ministers to soldiers in the camps. "The object of the visit was to 
bring about perfect harmony between the work to be done and the 
military authorities." What took place, including authorized inter- 
views by General Funston and his chief of staff, is thus related by 
Dr. Gambrell : 

"I was not permitted to have an interview with General Funston, 
though that had been agreed on the day before, but did have an inter- 
view with Colonel Barnum, the chief of staff. What was said at that 
interview, which is made the basis of the wide protest of Baptists and 
others, was stated in an interview given out September 22. Here 
are Colonel Baruum's words : 'As we understand it, it was proposed 
that some fifteen or twenty ministers enter the camps. I explained 
the proposal to General Funston, tcho said he had no objection to the 
holding of services for religious instruction, but that he wanted no 
revivals and did not desire that men should be told that they are 
lost.' That is a correct statement of what occurred, and that is the 
basis of the Baptist protest. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 17 

"lu a reported interview, General Funston, himself, said. 'When the 
question of rcrivals teas broached, Colonel Barnum, acting under my 
instructions, informed Dr. Gambrell that there is no objection to 
religious meetings, so long as they are conducted along accepted lines 
at the proper time and place. He pointed out that the men are not to 
be considered lost. Dr. Gambrell did not view the matter in that 
same light.' This is a perfectly correct statement of what occurred. 
In the running conversation, which lasted some fifteen or twenty 
minutes, perhaps. Colonel Barnum did say, 'That soldiers icere above 
the average, and were not to be treated as sinners of any special 
class.' I fully agreed that soldiers are ordinary sinners and should 
be so treated. General Funston has given out the information, him- 
self, upon which the Baptist protest rests. 

"In a letter written to General Funston some days later, I set out 
the Baptist view, stating that it was not only the Baptist view, but 
the view of all evangelicals. In that letter I made it plain that we 
would expect to conform to military regulations in the camps, etc., 
and expressed regret that things had turned out as they had. General 
Funston was also told in that letter that his orders would create pro- 
found dissatisfaction, a thing he is beginning to find out, though 
what is going on now is only a preliminary skirmish. 

"General Funston did not answer my letter. In an interview given 
on September 22, he says: 'Later I received a letter from Dr. Gam- 
brell on the stibject of the proposed revivals. Pressure of other 
affairs kept me from ansivering it immediately. I had intended ivrit- 
ing at length, setting forth my position and that of the army, and 
offering the use of the Y. M. C. A. buildings for religious services.' 
It might have saved a good deal of trouble if General Funston had 
taken time, after some days, to write. In the same interview he 
insists that 'the fact that men are in the army affords no reason why 
there should be any special need of the kind of religious attention 
manifested at revivals.' And he speaks of noise and confusion as a 
reason why revivals should not be held in the camps ; also that Jews 
and Catholics and others do not believe in them." 

In view of these facts, be it 

Resolved by the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, in an- 
nual session, representing 2,161 white Baptist Churches with a mem- 
bership aggregating 277,837 : 

1. That we register our most vigorous protest against the proscrip- 
tion of General Funston as arbitrary in assumption, tyrannical in 
application, totally un-American in spirit, and virtually, if not actu- 
ally, violative of the Constitution of the United States, which declares 
that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of re- 
ligion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ; or abridging the free- 
dom of speech, or of the press ; or the right of the people to peaceably 



18 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

assemble and to petition the Government for the redress of griev- 
ances." 

2. That we reassert the historic position of Baptists as in general 
against the slightest semblance of union between Church and State, 
in particular against the introduction of militarism into the field of 
religion, and also against any restriction whatsoever upon that liberty 
which guarantees alike to every religious denomination the right to 
hold and propagate its faith, and alike to every individual the right 
to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience. 

3. That we most resi)ectfully petition the President of the United 
States, as Commander-in-Chief of the Army, to set aside the conditions 
imposed by General Funston, and to grant the request of the Baptist 
General Convention of Texas and of the Home Mission Board of the 
Southern Baptist Convention ; and, further, to make known and 
magnify the fundamental fact that no officer of army or navy has 
any right to officially act as censor of theological doctrine or judge of 
Christian procedure. 

4. That we also petition North Carolina's representatives in the 
National Congress to introduce or support such measures as will 
result in a thorough investigation of the religious condition of the 
army and navy generally, and particularly of any limitations upon 
the efforts of evangelical churches in army camps or elsewhere ; of 
any improper influence or partiality in the selection of chaplains or 
in the prescribing of religious services or ceremonies ; and of any 
influence which may tend to prevent the utmost freedom of thought 
and conscience in the soldiers or sailors of America or their untram- 
meled right to worship God as they choose, without let or hindrance. 

5. That certifie<l copies of these resolutions be forwarded by regis- 
tered mail by the President and Secretary of this Convention, to 
Senator Simmons and Senator Overman, and to each member of Con- 
gress from North Carolina, and that a Committee of five, appointed 
by the President of this Convention, with himself as Chairman, be 
requested to bear in person these resolutions to President Wilson. 

The following committee was later appointed by the Chair 
to bear in person these resolutions to President Wilson : John 
A. Gates, Hight C. Moore, W. L. Poteat, K. T. Vann, and

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON AVAKE FOREST CHURCH 
BUILDING 

The Committee appointed at the last session of the Convention to 
have in charge the collection of funds for the payment of the debt of 
the Convention on the church building at. Wake ^Forest report that 



22 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

through the efforts of Rev. C. E. Maddry, Chairman of the Committee, 
there has been collected during the year the sum of $1,508.56. This 
amount was collected almost entirely before June 1st last. In May 
last Brother Maddry was called to a pastorate in Texas, which he 
accepted. It was the intention of Brother Maddry to go before the 
Associations during the summer and fall in behalf of this debt, but 
the Committee was deprived of the valuable services of Brother 
Maddry on account of his leaving the State. 

The Committee, after consideration of the matter, and after con- 
sulting with a number of brethren, deemed it advisable that the pay- 
ment of this debt should be accomplished without making an inde- 
pendent canvass, by having the debt paid gradually out of the Church 
Extension I\ind. 

The Home Mission Board, as requested by the Convention at its 
last session, agreed to give to this object an additional sum of $2,500 
(they having already given this amount), and said Board has given 
to the Committee its note for $2,500, payable April 30, 1917, which 
will be applied, when collected, upon this debt. The Committee be- 
lieves that the debt can be taken care of until paid if as much as 
$2,000 per year is paid on the same and the interest which will accrue 
thereon, out of the Church Extension Fund, and the Committee recom- 
mend that this be done. 

There has been collected since the last Convention, through the 
efforts of Brother Maddry, $1,508.56, as above stated. There was ex- 
pended by Brother Maddry on salary to Brother James I. Kendrick, 
the former agent, for collecting funds for said debt, interest and other 
charges, the sum of $1,244.72, a detailed statement of which is ai)- 
peuded to the Report, and there is now in bank the sum of $263.84. 
This cash, together with the before-mentioned note of the Home Mis- 
sion Board for $2,500, are the assets with which to pay the debt on 
the Wake Forest Church Building, which amounts to $9,000. This 
will leave due a balance of $6,236.16 to be paid on the debt by the 
Church Extension Fund, as before stated, if this shall be acceptable 
to the Convention.

REPORT ON REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION 

Your Committee -is pleased with the work which the Board has 
done. The money collected is by no means the measure of its achieve- 
ments. It gives us information concerning the needs of our schools, 
and brings us face to face with the task of equipping and endowing 
them, if they are to fulfill the purpose for which they were founded. 
Therefore we recommend : 

1. That the Convention instruct its Board of Education to consider 
the advisability of launching a campaign for adequate equipment and 
endowment for our Colleges and High Schools, and report to the 
next Convention with suggestions of details for such a campaign. 

2. That the Board of Education in carrying out these instructions 
confer with the Boards of Trustees of the three Colleges, or their rep- 
resentatives, and with one representative from each High School in 
our system, together with five brethren to be named by the President 
of the Convention.

W. R. Cullom read the following communication from tlie 
ministerial students at Wake Forest College, which, on mo- 
tion, was received and ordered to be spread upon the Minutes 
of the Convention: 

In one of the regular meetings of the Ministerial Class of Wake 
Forest College last January Rev. Baylus Cade, Rev. Walter N. John- 
son, Dr. T. J. Taylor, and Dr. W. R. Cullom were present and spoke 
on the question of employment available for us, as ministerial stu- 
dents, during our summer vacation. It was the unanimous opinion 
of those present that we, as young ministers of the Gospel, ought to 
spend our vacation in work that is more in harmony with the work 
of the ministry. 

Whereas, We as ministerial students of Wake Forest College each 
year face the problem of spending wisely and profitably our summer 
vacation, and 

Whereas, Almost the only work available is along the lines of 
salesmanship, and 

Whereas, We as ministerial students prefer work more closely 
related to our work in the ministry ; therefore be it 

Resolved, first, that our vacation be spent in the following phases of 
the ministry: (1) with pastorless churches, (2) supplying for pas- 
tors, who for various reasons are absent from their pulpits, (3) as- 
sisting in revival meetings whenever possible, (4) doing any other 
kind of work endorsed by the Convention. 

Second, that a copy of these resolutions be read before our annual 
Pastors' Conference. 

Third, that a copy of these resolutions be read before our Baptist 
State Convention.

Korth Carolina Baptists to the Student Aid Fund at the

E. L. Middlcton read the following report of the Execu-

BAPTIST SEASIDE ASSEMBLY 

Our 1916 meeting was again a success. Tlie attendance was more 
than 400 and the character of the work done was of a high order. The 
several departments, of Sunday School Methods, Missions, Young 
People' Work, and the Study of Pastoral Relations were in charge of 
safe, strong teachers. The life and work of our denomination was 
explained and emphasized at every point, and the response was most 
encouraging. 

By the courtesy of the Tidewater Power Company we have the free 
use of the new Auditorium Building, which is specially adapted for 
our work. 

Arrangements are in process for accommodations at a lower rate, 
so that our people can attend at very little expense. 

An assembly fee of one dollar is charged, admitting to all special 
features — the regular work being open without charge to all. 

We are planning for a special department of Evangelism in charge 
of a Home Board representative, which we believe will be helpful 
and largely attended. 

Meetings of the kind we are undertaking at Wrightsville Beach are 
growing in popularity and usefulness, and we recommend that the 
work be continued under the same arrangements as heretofore. 

Our receipts and expenditures will be submitted to the State Mis- 
sion Board for audit and approval. 

On motion of E. L. Middleton the Chair appointed the fol- 
lowing members of the Executive Committee of the Seaside 
Assembly: Carey J. Plunter, L. E. Varser, J. A. Sullivan,

tions, which were adopted by a unanimous rising vote, with-

Whereas, John Hajmes Mills spent almost all of his mature life 
within the borders of this old Commonwealth of North Carolina ; and 

Whereas, he was one of the largest, if not, indeed, the very 
largest, of the intellectual and moral forces amongst North Carolina 
Baptists in his generation ; and 

Whereas, he was the pioneer in the gathering and the organization 
of material, mental, moral, and spiritual resources for the nurture 
and education of desolate orphan children amongst us ; and 

Whereas, the Baptists of North Carolina, whom he loved and led 



32 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVEXTION 

into their very greatest work of liome achievement, have hitherto 
ei'ected no suitable monument to embalm and perpetuate his memory 
amongst men ; and 

- Whereas, we, the Baptists of North Carolina, are earnestly desir- 
ous to perpetuate the memory of our departed brother even unto the 
latest posterity, and to testify our humble gratitude to God for having 
given to us a man who told us what to do for our desolate children, 
and showed us how to do it ; Now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, by this Convention : 1. That a Committee, consisting of 
the following brethren, viz. : T. J. Taylor, E. F. Aydlett, Charles E. 
Brewer, Hight C. Moore, Gilbert Stephenson, Judge E. W. Timber- 
lake, and Livingston Johnson, be appointed to secure from the Baptist 
children of North Carolina the amount of money which may be found 
necessary to erect upon the Orphanage grounds at Thomasville, N. C, 
a statue of our late Brother Mills in heroic bronze. 

2. That the statue herein provided shall consist of two figiires, 
and shall present Brother Mills as standing erect, and holding a 
shield over the head of a desolate child. 

3. That the Committee herein provided for, shall continue to serve 
until the statue which they are directed to build shall have been com- 
pleted and unveiled ; and they shall have power to fill any and all 
vacancies which may occur in their membership by death or other- 
wise.

MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 33 

Committee, and the Committee was discharged, after a brief 
discussion by Braxton Craig and J. F. Love. 

REPORT OF JUDSON CENTENNIAL COMMITTEE 

The Southern Baptist Convention in session at Oklahoma City in 
1912 authorized the Foreign Mission Board to launch a campaign for 
$1,250,000 for the better physical equipment of our mission stations 
in various parts of the world. At the Convention held in Asheville 
last May the welcome report was made that the entire amount in cash 
and good pledges had been secured and that the goal had been 
reached, whereupon there was great rejoicing. 

When this Convention met in Goldsboro in December, 1912, the 
Judson Centennial Movement was endorsed, the sum of $90,000 
(enough approximately to equip the field laid out by Dr. M. T. 
Yates in China) was agreed upon as North Carolina's share of the 
grand total, and a committee of five appointed to plan and lead the 
campaign to raise this amount. We have reported to the Convention 
every year the progress of the work done, making grateful mention of 
the services rendered by Dr. R. T. Bryan, then at home on furlough ; 
by our Field Representatives, Rev. G. T. Lumpkin and Rev. Braxton 
Craig ; and by diligent pastors and generous churches. And now, in 
presenting our final report we are happy to say that our Foreign 
Board in Richmond, Va., has received for the Judson Fund in cash 
and pledges from North Carolina the sum of $91,340.78. "Praise God 
From Whom All Blessings Flow !" 

Having completed the task assigned us by the Convention, we desire 

1. To express our deepest appreciation of the sympathy and coope- 
ration given us by the brotherhood all over the State during the 
campaign which has thus come to a successful conclusion. 

2. To urge that all notes be redeemed to the last cent, promptly and 
without fail ; and especially that the pledges made by a few of our 
larger churches be as sacredly kept as if they were collectible notes 
in the bank. 

3. To commend the further eqiiipment of our foreign fields (houses 
of worship, missionaries' homes, school buildings, hospitals, printing 
plants, etc.), to men and women of means who may wish to wisely 
invest in this way some of the Lord's money in their hands ; and 

4. To ask that the Committee be discharged.

MINUTES OF THE PASTORS' CONFERENCE 



lu the auditorium of the Blackwell Memorial Baptist Church of 
Elizabeth City the North Carolina Baptist Pastors' Conference met 
in its tenth annual session, Monday night, December 4, 7 :30, J. Clyde 
Turner presiding. After singing, "Come Thou Fount of Every Bless- 
ing." C. W. Scarborough led in prayer, and B. C. Heuing read Acts 
2 :14-36. "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name" was sung. Special 
music was rendered by the choir. 

President E. Y. Mullins, of the Southern Baptist Theological Sem- 
inary, Louisville, Ky., was then presented by President Turner, and 
delivered an address on "The Lordship of Jesus," Acts 2 :36, after 
which W. R. Cullom led in prayer and "Crown Him, Crown Him" 
was sung. 

The Chair appointed the following Committee to nominate officers 
for the next session : T. H. King, W. M. Craig, and W. L. Griggs. 
The Conference then adjourned with prayer by E. N. Johnson, after 
which the Baptist Ministers' Benevolent Assurance Association had 
a business meeting, electing the following oflicers for the ensuing 
year : President, M. A. Adams, Boone ; Vice-President, A. A. Pippin, 
Wakefield ; Secretary and Treasurer, T. H. King, Mt. Airy ; Auditor, 
W. R. Cullom, Wake Forest. 

TUESDAY— Morning Session 

"Draw Me Nearer," "My Jesus, I Love Thee," "All the Way My 
Saviour Leads Me," and "My Faith Looks Up to Thee" were sung, 
T. W. O'Kelley and L. Johnson led in prayer and a number of Scrip- 
ture quotations were given during the opening exercises. 

J. A. Sullivan read a paper on "The Soul Winning Church," follow- 
ing with an appeal that this Conference go on record in an effort to 
make next j-ear one of personal evangelism. 

A motion was introduced by T. B. Davis that pastors of this Con- 
ference try to enlist at least twentj'-five per cent of their membership 
in a soul-winning eifort, and that the Chair appoint a committee to 
try to enlist all the pastors in the State in this effort. After discus- 
sion by M. A. Adams and B. C. Hening the motion was tabled, on 
motion of A. A. Butler. 

Livingston Johnson read a paper on "Guarding the Deposit," after 
which "Rescue the Perishing" was sung. C. L. Greaves followed with 
an address on "The Weekly Voice From Heaven," or "The Minister's 
Sermon As a Voice From Heaven." At the conclusion of the address 
W. R. Cullom called attention to the presence of Josiah Elliott, the 
man who discovered the last speaker. Upon request Brother Elliott 
stood up. Six or seven other men. Brother Elliott's "sons in the 
Gospel," arose. Prayer was offered by Walter N. Johnson. 



46 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION

[APPENDIX A.] 
Report of Board of Missions 



"O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the 
high mountain ; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, 
lift up thy voice with strength ; lift it up, be not afraid ; 
say unto cities of Judah, Behold your God ! — Isaiah. 

Your Board of Missions now renders account of its stewardship 
for another year to the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina 
assembled in its eighty-sixth annual session. 

We present our reports under these heads : 

1. Work of the Year. 

2. Phases of the Work to be Stressed Now. 

3. Recommendations. 

I — Work of the Year 

I.— GENERAL SURVEY. 

In the work of your Board this has been a normal year. It 
reports no defeat, and no great advance ; but general progress. 

1. State Missions. — Our work for the year cannot be told in 
statistics, any more than sunshine can be tabulated in figures. 
Yet crops grown in the sunshine can be measured approximately. 
The following figures tabulate some fruits of our work for the 
year 1916: 

Sermons 11,568 

Churches served 319 

Out-stations served 116 

Baptisms 2,211 

Added by letter 1,583 

Meetings held 447 

Conversions 3,487 

Churches building 41 

Churches finished 11 

Churches organized 7 

Salaries paid $35,432.87 

Paid on churches 27,879.62 

Paid on parsonages 26.25 

Paid to State Missions 2,891.08 

Paid to Associational Missions 1,108.09 

Paid to Foreign Missions 4,612.02 

Paid to Home Missions 2,994.32 

Paid to Education 611.58 

Paid to Orphanage 3,768.72 



48 .V. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

Paid to Sunday-schools 886.24 

Paid to Ministerial Relief 481.25 

Paid to other objects 15,446.88 

Number of Sunday-schools 373 

Number of pupils 47,039 

Number of conversions from these schools.... 1,472 

There is a long drop below last year in the number of bap- 
tims reported. It pains us to note this. It is well, however, to 
recall that last year was unusual in its number of baptisms. This 
year runs right along with both 1913 and 1914 in baptisms. We 
may also consider this fact : owing to a change in our State Mis- 
sion calendar last year, our report for this year covers only eleven 
months. It is also interesting to note that conversions reported 
this year come about up with the report of last year, counting 
in tlie twelfth month for the sake of comparison. 

2. Home Missions. — The Home Board is located at Atlanta, Ga. 
Total receipts of the Home Board last year were $344,348. Of this 
amount North Carolina gave $29,824. 

A large part of the work of the Home Board is done co-operatively 
with the State Boards of Missions throughout the Southern Bap- 
tist Convention. It has several departments of- such work as — 

Church Extension : 4,000 homeless churches that need help in 
building. The Home Board is launching a campaign for $1,000,000 
for this purpose. The women of the South are proposing to give 
one-third of it. About $300,000 are already in hand. So $400,000 
is still to be raised. 

Evangelism : 20,709 baptisms were reported last year by this de- 
partment. Twenty-eight evangelists. The city-wide and the simul- 
taneous Associational campaign are features of this work. There 
is also a work going on among the colored churches under the direc- 
tion of this department. 

Publicity : Books and tracts are issued. It is becoming clearer 
each year that we cannot depend upon interdenominational agen- 
cies for our mission literature. 

Mountain Schools: 34 schools, 177 teachers, 5,319 students, 94 
ministerial students. In North Carolina are located nine of these 
schools which have fifty-five teachers and 1,610 students. 

Cuban Work ; 43 churches and stations. 1,876 members. 

Work among Foreigners. Negroes and Indians : Read Report 
Southern Baptist Convention Minutes, 1916, page 53. 

Panama : 9 churches. 

Enlistment : 15 workers in 8 states, W. R. Bradshaw and J. I. 
Kendrick were supported this year in North Carolina in this work 
jointly by the Home and our State Board. 

North Carolina's apportionment for Home Missions is $37,500 
for this year. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 49 

3. Foreign Missions. — The Foreign Mission Board is located in 
Riclimond, Va. The total receipts for Foreign Missions last year 
were $517,323. Of this amount North Carolina gave $51,148. 

We are at work in Africa, Argentina, Brazil, China, Italy, Japan, 
and Mexico. On our foreign field there are 459 churches ; 95 
self-supporting churches ; 42,630 members ; 203 houses of >vorship ; 
$129,054 was contributed last year. 

The Judson Centennial Fund campaign came to a successful 
finish last May. There are still many outstanding notes to be 
collected on this item among our people. 

During the year Miss Pearl Johnson of the Sandy Creek Asso- 
ciation has gone as a missionary to China. 

North Carolina's apportionment for this year to Foreign Missions 
is $55,000. 

4. Financial Statement. — Financial statement by Walters Dur- 
ham, Treasurer, is appended to this report. It shows that we gave 
this Convention year closing November 21 to — 

State Missions $54,853.50 

Home Missions 33,699.21 

Foreign Missions 47,923.56 

This is a drop of $670.89 in our receipts for State and Associ- 
ational Missions. If we separate the figures for State and for 
Associational Missions for this year and last, we find that we gave 
this j-ear specifically for State Missions $870.59 more than last year. 
But in this connection it is well to remark that Home Mission 
receipts in North Carolina this Southern Baptist Convention year 
increased $2,097 over last year, and Foreign Mission receipts in 
Nortli Carolina increased $4,408 over last year ; this, too, despite 
the fact that one week was taken off this year and added to 
last year just as the books were closing. Besides this, we gave 
$13,015.98 on the Foreign Mission debt. 

The total receipts of the Treasurer of our Baptist State Con- 
vention this year are $170,035.09. Last year they w^ere $148,025.86. 
So here is a gain of $21,119.23 over last year. This is a glorious 
showing for the financial side of the year's work. 

For this has been in many respects a hard year on our work. 
The most exciting election in fifty years ; the fioods and short crops 
in some sections of our State ; the dizzy prosperity that makes us 
forget God and His work in some spots of the State, all these 
made a peculiar sitiaation for us this year. Besides all this, the 
Corresponding Secretary, expected to press State Missions especially, 
has been impelled by conviction and circumstances to say far 
more about regular giving to all regular objects of our Conven- 
tion than about State Missions specifically. We are in a transi- 
tion now in the financing of our Baptist work. It is a distinct 
triumph that we have come out so well this year. 4 



50 N. C. BAPTIST STATE COXVEXTION 

For in the face of these couditious, we are able to report "prac- 
ticallj- no debt", with a good year's work done. On the morning 
of November 22 after the clouds cleared away we found we lacked 
only $164.50 of having $55,000 and that separating State and Asso- 
ciational Missions we had raised $990 more than last year for 
State Missions. But the pressure of need forced us to vote $9,62G 
to church buildings with the understanding that some of these items 
could be carried over into next year. Since last Convention we 
have paid on church buildings $5,726.00. This leaves $4,100.00 to 
be carried forward into next year's appropriations for church build- 
ings. No feature of our State Mission work is so perplexing to 
your Board as the inadequacy of our church building fund and the 
overwhelming urgency for help at many needy points. 

The figures as set forth in the Treasurer's report of office and 
travelling expenses somewhat exceed the figures of last year. Higher 
cost of supplies for office and printing, the extra amount of travel- 
ling by a new Secretary trying to get into touch with the field 
during the winter, spring and summer, and the fact that he has 
not got certain concessions from certain railroads which the Board 
has used heretofoi'e explains this increase in expense. 

We include in our report to the Convention separate reports of 
the different departments of our missionary activity : Sunday Schools, 
Enlistment Work, Women's Work, Layman's Movement, Baptist 
Young People's Unions, etc. They have all wrought well this year ; 
let them speak for themselves. 

Our largest and most immediate task is to enlist in our work 
those whom we have won to our faith. The fact is evangelization 
and enlistment are fastened together in the economy of the King- 
dom just like the faith and works in the Christian experience of 
the individual Christian. 

II.— ENLISTMENT WORK. 

1. — IN THE EAST. 

As Co-operative Field Worker of the Board of Missions of the 
North Carolina Baptist State Convention from January 1 to 
October 10, 1916, I beg to submit the following concerning the 
work. I have no statistics here, as these have been given in my 
monthly reports. The two great needs of the eastern section of 
North Carolina, where most of my work was done, are evangelism 
and enlistment. It was a surprise to me to find such great need 
of evangelism in this section. In my judgment the Board could 
not do a wiser thing than to employ an evangelist and a singer 
to devote their entire time to this section. Each evangelistic cam- 
paign should be followed by an effort to enlist every member in 
the financial support of the church and made a part of the work 
of the preaching and singing evangelist. Tlie nearly three hundred 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 51 

thousand white Baptists in North Carolina should not be satisfied 
for such a large portion of the State to longer continue without 
Baptist preaching. 

James I. Kendrick. 

2. — IN THE WEST. 

This has been an unusual year in many respects for the work in 
the West. 

In the early spring the forest fires destroyed hundreds of dollars' 
worth of property, and on July sixteenth the greatest freshet ever 
known to our people swept away in a few hours millions of wealth. 
Along the valleys of the Yadkin, Catawba, French Broad, New 
River and many other mountain streams, the finest bottom lands 
were laid waste, — crops were destroyed ; nothing left but sand, 
rocks, wreckage and desolation. Eighty-five per cent of the farms 
along the water courses have been damaged. Many of our people 
will need help, and this need will become more pressing for some- 
time. And, too, we have had one of the most strenuous political 
campaigns in our history. So this year is by no means a fair 
test of what our people are able to do. Yet, Baptist work in 
Western North Carolina has made steady progress. Several good 
church buildings have been begun, and some completed ; many of our 
churches increased their pastor's salary, and it is gratifying to 
record that more are paying their pastors monthly than ever before, 
and are giving to benevolence systematically. Many meetings of 
great power have been held. 

Demoralising Agencies. — There are multitudes of summer visi- 
tors, bent on pleasure, introducing forms of worldiness which is 
profoundly affecting the religious life of the younger members in 
many of our churches. The spirit, also, of commercialism is pre- 
valent in the industrial centers and many of the rural districts, 
and the churches in some quarters have not been able to cope with 
these new conditions. 

Work to fee Done. — There are some needy places in Western 
North Carolina whei'e we do not have an organized church or a 
church building. We should not be satisfied as long as one square 
mile of territory is without the gospel or a self-sustaining Baptist 
church. 

Pastoral support is another thing at which we must continue to 
work. While pastoral support has doubled in several Associations 
in the last nine years, still there are many churches which pay 
their pastors only a pittance. This must be remedied before 
these churches will ever do much for the larger tasks of the denomi- 
nation. 

We need to take up the work among the Cherokee Indians. 
Some years ago, during the existence of the Western North Caro- 



52 .A. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

Una Convention, a missionary labored among these Indians one 
or two years. So far as I have been able to learn, this is the 
only work that has ever been done for them in a systematic way. 
There are more than two thousand of them and only one hundred 
and forty-five belong to Baptist churches, and less than three hun- 
dred belong to any church. They are naturally Baptists, and look 
to us for help. They ought not to look in vain. 

Then, there are church houses that ought to be built at once, at 
Newland, Elk Park, Altapass, Penlaud and three in Graham County. 
While there are other places where we need houses, these are the 
pressing ones just now. 

The enlistment of the Lord's people in the larger work of the 
brotherhood, while by no means a peculiarity of the mountain peo- 
ple, is nevertheless very much needed. 

The New Testament plan of financing the Kingdom needs to be 
constantly kept before the people. We have a few generous givers 
in the West, but we need a revival of this "grace" among all our 
people. 

Encouragement. — "In very recent years many good church build- 
ings have been erected; pastoral support has at many points be- 
come more adequate ; contributions to benevolence have vastly in- 
creased ; the spirit of co-operation in the Lord's work has spread and 
strengthened": denominational intelligence has been widely dissemi- 
nated ; missionary institutes and pastors' conferences have helped 
waken to higher efficiency levels ; excellent denominational schools 
have been maintained and patronized ; the Associations and other 
general meetings are proving to be foci of new power and influence ; 
in short, our work in the West on the whole is extremely en- 
couraging," is a statement of one who is familiar with the work 
in the highlands of North Carolina. 

Summary of the Year's Work. — Twelve meetings were held, which 
resulted in the conversion of 228 pensous, and the addition of 
140 members to the churches by baptism. Twenty-three missionary 
institutes and eleven pastors' conferences were conducted. The pas- 
tors at these conferences are given time to present the problems 
on their fields, and a large part of the time is taken up in a free 
and full discussion of them. 

There has been an Every-Member Canvass in twelve churches, 
growing out of our conferences ; three fields have been formed and 
pastors located. 

Nineteen Associations were visited. Generally speaking, the of- 
ficers have been strong and capable. The reports show progress 
along several lines. We believe that greater giving is on the way. 
These Associations have never done what they could, for the reason, 
in part, that they have never known what they could do. But 
they are waking up and are going to advance more rapidly. The 
spirit of unity and co-operation is growing stronger each year. One 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 53 

church has been organized, and two church houses have been dedi- 
cated. Two hundred and ninety-one sermons and addresses have 
been delivered, — many tracts have been distributed ; hundreds of 
letters have been written, and many miles traveled. 

Our work in the West is far from ideal, and there are many im- 
provements that can be made, but with the momentum already 
obtained, growth ih the future, we believe, will be more rapid.

III.— REPORT OF LAYMEN'S COMMITTEE. 

Attention is called to four things concerning our Baptist Lay- 
men's Missionary Movement : Adjustment, Achievement, Record, and 
Recommendations. 

1. Adjustment. — There has been a remarkable evolution in the 
Laymen's Movement. The stages of advance have been marked by 
the rectification of several mistakes : 

(1) In the beginning, a mistake was made in putting too much 
emphasis upon its business aspects, magnifying too largely the 
dollar and relying too heavily upon business sagacity. 

(2) Again, it was centered exclusively upon missions in heathen 
lands, its advocates operating under two fundamental fallacies — 
first, that our own country is sufficiently evangelized, and, secondly, 
that foreign missions demands only the passing of gospel heralds 
through non-Christian countries and not the long slow process of 
winning converts and planting churches. 

(3) Moreover, it was interwoven with the spirit of an effusive 
interdenominationalism which tended to denominational efCacement 
at home and denominational delimitation abroad. 

(4) The Baptist Laymen's Movement started out possibly with 
a little too much independence, many being led to believe that it 
would lift from the churches their financial burdens, fill our mission 
treasuries, and solve all the money problems of the Kingdom. 

Happily, these mistakes have been rectified in the main, and the 
Laymen's Movement as proven practicable among our Baptist peo- 
ple, is far more a movement than an organization, having only 
such slight and flexible general organization, State and Southern, 
as is needed for educational, advisory, and co-operative purposes, 
leading and leaving the men of the churches to do their own work 
within their churches and through the regular local and general 
denominational channels. 

2. Achievement. — There are four things which may justly be 
credited to the Laymen's Movement, particularly as carried on by 
Southern Baptists : 

(1) It has greatly aroused our men in regard to the obligations 
of stewardship, its educational work having directly induced many 



54 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

hundreds of men to adopt the tithe as their minimum standard 
of giving. 

(2) It has done untold good in promoting the Every-Member 
Canvass and Weekly Giving. For example, Secretary Henderson 
alone has helped to install and conduct the Every-Member Canvass 
in scores of our churches and is not able to respond to one-half 
the calls that come to him for that service. 

(3) It has inspired numbers of laj'meu to go afield at their 
own charges to make addresses on stewardship and call to their 
duty the men of the churches. 

(4) It has stimulated multitudes of laymen to greater loyalty 
to their pastors, to their churches, to their denomination, and to 
the cause of Christ. 

3. Record. — Our work in North Carolina for the past twelvemonth 
may be briefly summarized : 

(1) The Committee appointed a year ago was enlarged, as author- 
ized by the Convention, to include about forty brethren located con- 
veniently for service in all parts of the State. The Committee has 
greatly missed the services of its Chairman, Dr. E. W. Sikes, who 
has removed from the State. 

(2) The principal undertaking of this Committee was an effort 
in the spring to help cancel the debt on the Foreign Mission Board. 
For this purpose the State was districted, church apportionments 
suggested, definite committee assignments made, and the work vig- 
orously launched. However, since the campaign began so late, other 
States failed to fall in line, and it was evident that the entire debt 
would not be cancelled, there was not the immediate financial re- 
sponse that would otherwise have been made. 

(3) In many Associations there have been good reports and dis- 
cussions of the Laymen's Movement. In at least one (the Wilming- 
ton) there has been inaugurated a movement looking to the organi- 
zation of Men's Unions in the various churches composing that 
body. 

(4) The publicity work of the year has consisted chiefly of num- 
erous letters and leaflets sent out from the State Committee at 
Raleigh, and from the oflice of the General Secretary at Knox- 
ville, Tenn., and of editorials and other articles in the Biblical 
Recorder and Charity and Children. 

4. Recommendations. — The following recommendations are pre- 
sented for the consideration of the Convention : 

(1) That we again heartily endorse the Laymen's Missionary 
Movement of Southern Baptists. 

(2) That a Laymen's Committee of the Convention be appointed 
with John A. Gates, of Fayetteville, as Chairman, and such other 
brethren as he may name during the session, to do in our churches 
and Associations such local enlistment work as they may deem 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 55 

desirable or practicable and to co-operate witli the general move- 
ment in the Southern Baptist Convention. 

(3) That we regard with favor the organization of Men's Mission 
Study Classes in our churches. 

(4) That we endorse the proposal to hold two conventions of 
Baptist men in the South next spring, one east and one west of 
the Mississippi River, and that we urge the men of our churches to 
attend the eastern convention which will probably be held about the 
middle of March in Asheville, N. C. 

HiGHT C. MooKE, For the Committee. 

Nothing in our mission work in North Carolina is so satisfactory 
as the noiseless, effective, sure way in which our sisters gather 
money for the Lord's work and send it in on time. We heartily 
endorse their systematic methods of work. Their method of book- 
keeping in the office of the Executive Committee of the Woman's 
Missionary Union is a lesson to our Convention and to our churches. 
It is a joy to include the report of their work in our report to you. 
Our Convention and our churches need the work of the W. M. U. 
just as much as our homes need the help of our women. 

lY.— REPORT OF THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE OF THE 
WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION. 

The record of the past year's work of the Woman's Missionary 
Union shows larger interest, greater activity and increased contri- 
butions to all objects of the Convention. 

At our Annual Meeting held in Winston-Salem, March 21-24, 1916, 
four hundred and three delegates were in attendance. The con- 
tribution for the year closing February 28, 1916, was as follows : 

To Foreign Missions $ 18.413.86 

Home Missions 11,763.53 

State Missions 11,718.50 

Louisville Training School 4,023.13 

Sunday School Board 185.53 

Expense Fund Executive Committee 655.40 

$ 46,759.95 

To Judson Centennial Fund $ 5.487.07 

Church Building and Loan Fund 712.39 

Total $ 52,959.41 

This amount brings the total contribution of our Union since Jan- 
uary, 1886, the date of its organization, to $533,908.30. 

Two hundred and forty-three new societies were organized during 
the year, making a total of 1,316 on our roll.

Much faitliful work has been done by our Associational Superin- 
tendents, and to their efforts we attribute mucli of tlie success of 
the work. 

Forty-five Associational meetings have been held and tliirty-five of 
these meetings were attended by officers of the Union. While it is 
our custom to make to the Convention tlie same statistical and gen- 
eral report we make to our Annual Meeting in March, we would 
mention here as a matter of special interest the gift in August 
of $3,000 to the Trustees of the Convention from Mrs. Joel Layton, 
of Dunn, to endow a scholarship at the Louisville Training School 
to be known as the Louis Castlebury Scholarship in memory of her 
father, and to express our great appreciation of tliis, the first 
endowment of our Woman's Missionary Union. 

During the sessions of the Seaside Assembly one hour each day 
was given to our work. These meetings were conducted in June, 
1915, by Miss Elizabeth N. Briggs and Mrs. C. E. Mason. The past 
summer they were held under tlie direction of Mrs. H. T. Pope, 
the Vice-President of the Wilmington Division, who will continue 
to conduct them as a special feature of the work of her division. 
Your Committee hopes to arrange for a similar meeting the com- 
ing year to be held at Ridgecrest. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 57 

It is with deep gratitude that we report the steady progress of 
the Woman's Missionary Union of North Carolina, the faithful and 
consecrated service of the many women throughout our State who 
are putting their hearts and lives into it, and we gladly take this 
opportunity to express to the pastors and our denominational lead- 
ers our thanks for their unfailing sympathy and loyal support in 
all our plans for the advancement of the great work of world-wide 
evangelism. 

Mrs. Wesley N. Jones, President. 

Miss Bertha Carroll, Secretary and Treasurer.

Mrs. C. E. Mason, Y. W. A. Secretary. 

Miss Elizabeth N. Briggs, Junior Superintendent. 

Training is always necessary for efficient service. The B. Y. P. 
U. is the training ground of the church. The Sunday-school teaches 
our people to know the truth ; the B. Y. P. U. seeks to train tliem 
to do tlie truth. This is the first year Secretary J. D. Moore has 
given his full time to our work. Report of the B. Y. P. U. of our 
Board shows that this work is wortli while. Here it follows : 

V. -ANNUAL REPORT OF THE B. Y. P. U. DEPARTMENT OF 
THE NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST STATE BOARD OF 
MISSIONS. 

The B. Y. P. U. Committee of the State Board of Missions sub- 
mits herewith its report for the past year, as follows : 

Summary of Field Work. — At a meeting of tlie B. Y. P. U. Com- 
mittee in Raleigh, December 16, 1916, Rev. J. D. Moore, of Ridge- 
crest, was chosen Secretary for all his time ; and his report of field 
work is summarized as follows : Number of days in the field, 204 ; 
miles traveled, 8,247 ; places visited, 134 ; lectures, addresses, etc., 
207 ; number of organizations in which he personally officiated, 42 ; 
number of churches represented at B. Y. P. U. meetings held by 
him, 191 ; number of B. Y. P. U. one-week training schools held, 6. 

Increased Numier of Unions. — It is gratifying to report more than 
one hundred per cent increase in the number of B. Y. P. U.'s dur- 
ing the year. From 149 a year ago, they have advanced to 300 and 
more, some of which liave not reported to the Secretary, — the total 
of which would doubtless reach the 350 mark. 

Gi-eater Efficiency. — But the most gratifying advancement has 
been that in efficiency and work on the part of the Unions. Those 
things which make for the life of the B. Y. P. U., and which 
minister to its object in training for church membership, are rap- 
idly becoming the bases of interest and the goal of effort. The most 
marked feature of progress in this respect is the enthusiasm with 
which the Baptist young people are taking up and pursuing the 
Systematic Bible Readers' Course. 



58 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CO^WENTION 

City Unions. — In seven of our North Carolina cities there are 
City-wide B. Y. P. U. organizations, doing effective work in stimu- 
lating the local Unions to greater efSciency and in prosecuting a 
campaign of training in their midst. In this matter we lead the 
entire Southland. In fact, there remain but few places in which 
the number of Unions would justify such an organization. Our 
possibilities are nearly reached. 

Schools and Colleges. — Doubtless the most encouraging feature of 
B. Y. P. U. conditions in North Carolina, notwithstanding the phe- 
nomenal progress in other respects, is the status in our Baptist 
schools and colleges, all of which, except one, have from one to 
four Unions each. This means that, after awhile, the students 
will return to their churches well versed in B. Y. P. U. learning, 
and can readily qualify for leadership among the young people in 
them. The school is the citadel, and it is exceedingly gratifying 
to know that the B. Y. P. U. is so nearly universal among the 
Baptist institutions in the State. 

State B. Y. P. U. Convention. — The seventh annual B. Y. P. U. 
State Convention was held in the city of Wilmington, June 22 to 
25, 1916. The attendance was by far the largest ever had, and the 
delegates were distinguished for their loyalty to Christ and their 
enthusiasm in the work of our churches. The next Convention will 
be held with the First Church of Gastonia, June 7 to 9, 1917. 

Xeeds. — (1) Junior Work. — The progress made in training among 
the Juniors, that is, boys and girls twelve to sixteen years of age, 
has been little less than wonderful. There are more than fifty 
Junior B. Y. P. U.'s now existing, — and that marks but the be- 
ginning. We need emphasis laid upon the department at this point. 
We ought to have not less than $250 to be spent next year in 
behalf of the Juniors. An assistant to the Secretary can be secured 
if a bare compensation can be given him for the time he gives to 
the work. 

(2) — Larger Appropriation. — The Committee has been forced to 
make urgent appeals to the B. Y. P. U.'s of the State to supplement 
the appropriation made by the Board last year for the support of 
the department. This necessity ought to exist no longer. We are 
stressing the imi)ortance of our young people giving systematically 
and proportionately, — and substautiallj' all their gifts, — through 
their churches ; and it seriously handicaps our efforts in that direc- 
tion to make urgent entreaties to them for the help necessary 
to carry the work along. It contradicts a cardinal B. Y. P. U. 
principle in that way. We hope that an appropriation of not less 
than $1500 will be made for next year. 

(3) — Co-operation of Pastors and Sunday-school Workers. — The 
B. Y. P. U. is an ally of the Sunday-school. No church is ade- 
quately equipped which lacks either of these. It is not indifference, 
but usually a lack of information, which is responsible for the ab- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 59 

sence of the B. Y. P. U. in so many of our churches. Those who 
are leaders now must take steps to train others who are to come 
after them. The B. Y. P. U. prepares our young people to be- 
come efficient as church officers and Sunday-school workers, hence 
we appeal to those who are now active in behalf of those who are 
prospective. 

Recommendations. — (1) We desire to suggest, and to petition our 
people to the end, that the B. Y. P. U. receive the same considera- 
tion at the hands of our churches and the denomination at large 
which they rightly give to Sunday-school interests. Sunday-school 
work is an established feature within our churches ; and the problem 
of maintenance is one of its chief concerns ; while with the B. Y. 
P. U., which parallels the Sunday-school in importance, there exists 
the great problem of coming into existence in sufficient numbers 
and extent. 

(2) To many of the Associations we would recommend the organ- 
ization of the B. Y. P. U.'s in their midst into an annual gather- 
ing for the consideration of young people's work. In this matter, 
the older people who are prominent in the Associational affairs 
ought to take the initiative. 

Acknowledgments.- — The department wishes to acknowledge its in- 
debtedness (1) to the Baptist Sunday School Board, Nashville, Tenn., 
for the appropriation of $250 to the State Board on account of 
the B. Y. P. U. department, and also for the presence of Mr. Arthur 
Flake, one of its B. Y. P. U. Secretaries, in so many of the training 
schools during the year; (2) to the Biblical Recorder for the spe- 
cial page which has been devoted to the B. Y. P. U. cause, the 
use of which, we believe, has been helpful both to the Recorder 
and to our young people; and (3) to the local Unions which have 
contributed to the support of the department, many of which 
have done so at a sacrifice on the part of their members. 

Prospective. — The past year has been abundantly fruitful. Shall 
the coming year be more so? "The best is yet to be." But in 
order to realize the best, we must put forth our best efforts. Wo 
pray for the larger blessings from our Heavenly Father, and a closer 
and more extensive co-operation and sympathy from the Lord's 
people. With these, the future will be rich with results.

Here follows the report of our Sunday-school work. It has 
been a year of hard work and deep joy to our tireless Sunday 
School Secretary. None of our workers touch the State farther 
in the future than Secretary Middleton and those who work with 
him in our Sunday-schools. 

VI.— REPORT OF SUNDAY SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 

Practically from its organization our State Mission Board has 
actively fostered Sunday-schools. Nearly all the time for forty 
years we have had a Sunday School Secretary. For many years 
our State stood alone in doing this work. She was a pioneer. 
Our policy has been vindicated by our own success and by its 
adoption and success in every State of the Southern Baptist Con- 
vention. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 61 

Being a pioneer we ought to liokl a place of primacy in Sunday- 
scliool achievement. This we do. In tlie ratio of number of churches 
to number of Sunday-schools in Sunday-school membership, in 
teacher training, we hold a front place. Measured by almost any 
standard our work is encouraging. 

As Baptists we believe in the great commission. This commands 
us to evangelize, baptize and didactize. Our Sunday-schools play 
a large part in the first since about eighty-five per cent of. all per- 
sons baptized came through the Sunday-school. Surely the last is 
our task. The greatest task before us today is to teach our peo- 
ple "to observe whatsoever I have commanded you." Those who 
know are those who do. 

Present Conditions. — (1) Membership. Our schools are growing. 
For ten years our average annual increase has been over 10,000. 
For some reason we do not make such a gain this year. It is 
only 6,093. Several things may account for this. One is better 
records showing nearer actual conditions. We know one school 
which reports 400 fewer than a year ago, but the school is now 
having a larger average attendance than then. Another reason is 
the fact there were more non-reporting churches to the Associations 
than in years. We now have 2,123 Sunday-schools with an enrollment 
of 221,148 as compared with 2,120 schools and 215,055 enrollment a 
year ago. 

(2) Teacher Training. — This work continues to grow. There is no 
more hopeful sign than this. Within a year the workers in our 
State have received 617 Diplomas, 112 Red Seals and 45 Blue 
Seals. The enrollments for tliis year are very hopeful. Since 
September 1 there have been reported to our Secretary's office 1,207 
names for the several books in the Normal Course. 

North Carolina leads in this work in colleges and schools. Last 
year in the Southern Baptist Convention sixty-nine institutions co- 
operated in this enterprise. North Carolina furnished twenty of 
these. Awards aggregating 3,467 were given in tliese institutions. 
North Carolina received 1,129 of these. 

The Reading Course is at last getting recognition. Quite a num- 
ber of schools have bought workers' libraries and have organized 
reading circles. Tlie award of the "Reading Course Certificate" 
has been made in several schools. 

(3) Organized Classes. — The enlistment of our men and women 
is increasing. We now have registered in the "Convention Adult 
Bible Class Department" at Nashville 2,107 classes with an enroll- 
ment of 56,997. Of these 525 classes and 16,499 members are from 
our State. The work has had a steady growth during the past 
year. 

(4) Standa7-d Sunday-schools. — Our people are fixing ideals for 
their work. Until 1914 we had never had but one standard school. 
In that year we had two. Last year we had eight, and this year 



62 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

we have nineteen. There are at least twenty-five more working 
definitely to this end. 

Office Work. — No exact record of this phase of the work can 
be tabulated. A growing personal correspondence is conducted. 
Many general or circular letters are sent to superintendents, pastors 
and other workers. In practically every letter, personal and gen- 
eral, there is put one or more helpful tracts. 

It is through the ofiice new Sunday-schools are organized. Last 
year sixty churches and mission points were reached in this way, 
and during six years over 400 new schools have been instituted. 
There are still over 100 churches to be reached with an agency for 
teaching the Bible. 

Definite plans are brought before our people for improving 
their buildings and equipment. We have issued two tracts on this 
subject : "Remodeling a One-Room Church for the Sunday School," 
and "Curtains for Class Rooms in a One-Room Church." 

Tracts for improving the organization and reaching the people 
are issued in lai-ge numbers. The annual "Go-to-Sunday-school- 
Day" ought to bring large returns at both these points. The Secre- 
tary did all he could to encourage the observance of this day. 

Co-operating with the Sunday School Board at Nashville, a regu- 
lar campaign for education is carried on through the letters and 
tracts named above. Every worker for the asking can now get 
the latest and best methods in Sunday-school work. 

Field Work. — This has been the present Secretary's busiest year 
in the field. He has travelled by railroad 14,500 miles. He has 
reached eighty-five points in twenty-nine Associations. He has 
tried to reach those points which will bring the largest results 
and has tried to distribute his work so as to reach as many as 
possible of every kind of our churches. He has been in six of our 
Baptist colleges and schools, in ten city churches, in fifteen town 
churches and fifty-four country and village churches. At these points 
he has delivered 219 addresses, including conferences and lessons 
in Normal Classes. He has reached at these meetings key-workers 
of over 500 of our churches. 

Finances. — We close the year out of debt. Last year on account 
of closing the year earlier and paying only eleven months' salaries 
and other expenses, we brought over $322.48. Treasurer Durham 
has received this year $2,450.33. The disbursements have been 
$2,385.45, leaving for the new year $387.36. Let no one think 
we have money lying idle, for $410.23 of this came in the last three 
days of the Convention year and half of it was drawn to pay 
expenses due December 1. 

We were instructed to plan the work on a basis of $2,750.00, 
but every economy consistent with reasonable efficiency has been 
practiced. We saved over $100.00 in some concessions to the Secre- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 63 

tary in transportation. We recommend that the work be based 
on an outlay of $2,750.00 for next year. 

Developing a Spirit of Benevolence. — Three years ago the Con- 
vention instructed the Sunday School Secretary and Committee "to 
arrange and promote a definite educational program for the proper 
presentation at definite times of all our Convention enterprises to 
and through our Suuday-scliools." This was done, enlarging policies 
already in use. There is a rich fruitage from this effort. We can- 
not give accurate data for 1916 as all the minutes of the Associ- 
ations are not available, but the results in 1915 were very fine. 
All Associations do not report their offerings through the Sunday- 
school to the various objects. In fifty-seven Associations we find 
$27,592.53 reported for the Orphanage, $11,833.47 to Missions, and 
$14,140.77 to other objects. This does not include Sunday-school 
expenses. In fifty-nine Associations $47,177.95 was reported for 
this object and scores of churclies having Sunday-schools do not 
report this item. A reasonable approximation would be that our 
schools gave last year $48,000.00 to INIissions and benevolence and 
$56,000.00 for their own use. No other State shows so much. 

We recommend that in the future we continue this campaign 
of educational benevolence using the following schedule: 

One Sunday each month for the Orphanage: The fourth Sunday 
in March for Home and Foreign Missions, using Missionary Day 
with special program ; One Sunday in May and October for Sun- 
day School Missions, using Children's Day in May ; The Fourth Sun- 
day in June for Christian Education, using special lesson in Sun- 
day-school literature; The fourth Sunday in September for State 
Missions, using special lesson and program provided for the day ; and 
one Sunday near Christmas for Ministers' Relief. 

Baptist Seaside AsseniNy. — This Assembly is fostered by the Con- 
vention for all the interests and not Sunday-schools alone, but 
since the Sunday School Secretary is General Secretary of the en- 
terprise, we mention it here. 

The second annual session was held at Wriglatsville Beach, June 
25 to July 2. Though the attendance was not all we could wish, 
it was representative from Associations covering three-fourths of 
the State. Over 400 people from every section east of the moun- 
tains were present. The program could hardily have been more 
helpful and interesting. 

Plans are being made to continue the work for next year. We 
commend it and invite the heartiest sympathy and co-operation 
from our people. 

Recommendations. — Former policies ought to be pursued. Every 
school is urged to strive towards local efficiency. This involves 
reacliing all the points necessary to become a "Standard Sunday- 
school" as a minimum ideal. It is a far-reaching effort of all Bap- 



64 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

tist Sunday-schools to co-operate in doing needed and definite things. 
We would emphasize some things named in this report, viz : — 

1. Definite campaigns for reaching more of our people for the 
Sunday-school. 

2. An enlistment of more of our workers in study courses and 
reading courses. 

3. A lining up of our men and women in the "Convention Adult 
Bible Class Department," of our Sunday School Board at Nash- 
ville. 

4. A more liberal financial report of the department of Sunday- 
schools of the State Mission Board. 

5. A persistent elfort to train our children and young people 
regarding the great interests of the Kingdom fostered by our 
Convention. 

6. Finally, a vitalizing of all our schools to make them mere 
effective in evangelism and more definite in training every one for 
personal service.

A CONSERVATIVE YEAR. 

No changes have been made this year in the administration of 
our mission work. The methods of the past have been followed 
closelj'. This course has been followed on account of the confidence 
that the new Secretary has in his predecessors. He knew that 
during his first year the work would have to go largely on the 
accumulated momentum of the past years ; so there has been so 
far no tampering with the methods that have served in the past. 
Besides, it was necessary for one thrust so unexpectedly into a new 
work to take a year for careful study of it. 

II— Phases to be Stressed 

During the year he has come to some conclusions : the mission 
work of our Baptist State Convention is a growing thing. Growth 
means change in proportions and relations ; this necessitates a shift- 
ing of emphasis from time to time in our work. Some new phases 
of our work are emerging now which call for consideration and 
development. 

For instance we need to stress 

Men's Mission Study Classes. 

The women have already demonstrated the value of this kind of 
work. Our State Boards of Missions in all the States of the South 
should encourage this work among the men of our churches. If 
desirable in any case, let men and women meet in the same classes. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 65 

It might be well to take the prayer meeting hour for this purpose 
for a season now and then, or the Sunday night service in some 
of our churches. 

Another present necessity is the stressing of 

Regular Giving 

in our churches for all regular objects of the Convention. Most of 
our churches still wait for a special appeal for each regular line of 
our work, before they give anything. To these churches we shall 
have to continue to go with appeals as heretofore until they find 
the better way. But in the meantime, our Board should respect 
any system of giving that a church may install and seek in every 
possible way to help it develop the grace and habit of giving along 
the lines it seeks to work. 

We must not overlook the fact that any plan of regular giving 
in any church is doomed to fail unless the church has been saturated 
with a sense and an experience of stewardship. A revival like that 
recorded in the fourth and fifth chapters of Acts must precede in 
any church successful systematic giving. 

This makes the change from jerky, periodic, spasmodic giving to 
regular giving in our churches a slow process. It is a calamity 
for a church to try to budget its obligations and meet them with 
regular giving before it is prepared in teaching and spiritual experi- 
ence to do so. 

About one hundred of our North Carolina churches are trying to 
work on the plan of regular giving to a budget. It is a signal 
success in most of them that really work it. But it is a dismal 
failure in some of them where the people were not prepared for it. 

Regular giving to a budget cannot be satisfactory in a church 
where the bulk of the members have not yet seen our whole Bap- 
tist work as an unit. 

At this point we have the task of rebuilding a bridge in an old 
road where the trafiic cannot be interrupted. It can be done ; it 
must be done ; but it must be done very slowly and cautiously, 
piece by piece. 

The time has come for a change in our method of 

Bookkeeping 

for the Baptist State Convention. If we want the figures of our 
work now we must go either to the acknowledgments in the Biblical 
Recorder wliere we only get the weekly totals and the totals to 
date with all items poured together in hash state, or to the Annual 
of the Baptist State Convention, where we have a medley of sixty- 
five different fiscal years. 

We can now get the amounts of the contributions of each church 
for the objects of the Convention the year afterwards, that, too,

from a fiscal year different from that of the Couvention. They 
are no good then, except for historical purposes. 

The Corresponding Secretary and the Treasurer of the Convention 
should have a bookkeeper to keep a careful record day by day, 
month by month, and quarter by quarter, of what each church and 
each Association does for each object. This information in the 
hands of the Corresponding Secretary forty days ago would per- 
haps have been worth thousands of dollars to State Missions. 

As it is now, the Convention does not know officially the treasurers 
of the local churches at all. There should be the relation of regu- 
lar correspondence between the Corresponding Secretary or the 
Treasurer of the Couvention and the treasurer of each church. This 
is a necessity whether we continue to acknowledge receipts in the 
Recorder or not. This will cost a little, but it will more than pay 
for itself in a pressure on the church treasurers for regular and 
prompt remittances and in the saving of interest on money already 
collected and lying idle in the treasury of some of our churches. 

Compact Pastorates. 

The situation has utterly changed among our small churches in 
the last twenty-five j'ears. The good roads, the rural telephone, the 
rural delivery, the parcel post, the improved public school, the 
automobile have poured country and town into the same tide of 
life and thought. The country church is about the only institu- 
tion that has not found this out. It is trying still to live under 
the old pioneer conditions with "absentee shepherd." Country and 
village Baptist churches must find some way to locate pastors close 
by them in compact pastorates. 

It is not the function of a Mission Board to form chui'ches into 
pastorates ; but its obligation is to help churches form themselves 
into pastorates. It should go far enough in doing this to make a 
demonstration of its advantage in every Association in North Caro- 
lina. 

We are now at the point where we must place a new emphasis 
upon our 

Church Buildixg Fund. 

Tliis fund is miserably inadequate now. We are every month 
overwhelmed with appeals for help that we cannot give for lack of 
funds. We may plant our churches everywhere ; but they are per- 
manent nowhere until they are lioused. This is especially true in 
an old settled State like ours. 

It is necessary, if we expect the Baptist view of religion and 
society to permeate our Commonwealth, to erect an adequate church 
building in every educational centre of our State and support 
right there an equipped, eflicient, prophetic pastor who can inter- 



2IINUTE8 OF SESSIOX 1916 67 

pret to the next generation of the State's leaders the New Testament 
foundations of modern democracy. That would be "inserting the 
gospel of the Kingdom in the spinal cord of our State." This policy 
will come to fruitage in the ideal Christian Commonwealth right 
here in our own North Carolina within the next hundred years. 
This should be an inflexible part of our State Mission policy for 
the next twenty-five years. 

Who knows but that the dire, distressing need of a church building 
a few years ago at our own Wake Fox'est and the little debt that 
lingers on the building now are two fingers of God pointing in the 
direction that our missionary movements should go in this State 
during this generation? 

We urge our people to do all in their power for the church build- 
ing fund of the Home Board in its present effort to raise $1,000,000. 

It is our conviction that we need to make some slight changes in 

OuB Methods of Distkibutixg Mission Funds. 

Each chui-ch receiving aid should ask for it by its own act in 
conference, and then its application should be endorsed by the 
Executive Committee of the Association in which the church is 
located. 

No church has a right to ask other churches to help it pay its 
running expenses until its own members are doing their part to 
support their own church. It cannot know whether its own mem- 
bership is doing its part without a thorough canvass of all its mem- 
bers. Therefore no appropriation should be finally made to a church 
until there has been an every-member canvass in it. 

Then, too, the appropriations should be made by the month and 
paid monthly, so that they may be increased, decreased or dis- 
continued any time according as the needs of the case vary from 
time to time. 

We should consider in our co-operative work 

The Position of the Pastor. 

The pastor is a New Testament officer. He functions at the 
heart of each church. This makes him a fixture in our Baptist life. 
This puts him at the center of our Baptist work. 

We may for some particular object reach a few of the members 
of a church by going around the pastor or under him or over 
him. But we never reach the majority of the members thus ; and 
the minority are reached for only one object ; and even for that 
object they are reached only once. It has to be done over again 
next year. 

Only by getting our Convention work as a whole fastened into the 
heart of its pastor and kindled forth as the passion of his soul 
can we get anv church organically articulated into our denomi- 



68 .Y. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

national undertaking. Otherwise, we cannot expect anything more 
than occasional help from a few members of a church for some 
of the objects of our Convention. That is our plight now with 
many churches. 

The central position of the pastor in our Baptist economy is funda- 
mental. But it is not yet a practical working conviction with us. 

Not over the pastor, nor under him, nor around him, but 
through him, and through his very soul at that, is our only open, 
straight way to the churches. But we are not going that way 
now as a conviction; but only as a convenience, where the soul of 
the pastor is already alive with the Convention's work. 

We need to pause and reflect how signally our Baptist State Con- 
vention is failing to grip many of our pastors. Only a small mi- 
nority of them attend our State Convention. In many of our 
district Associations even, the pastors of many of the churches 
are not present. There are, according to statement of the Busi- 
ness Manager of the Recorder, at least 350 pastors in North Caro- 
lina who do not even get the Biblical Recorder, the only organ of 
our Convention. , 

We must learn to depend upon the pastors of over 2,000 churches 
to take care of all our work, instead of depending on occasional 
visits to a few strong churches in behalf of each of our objects, 
or upon "big speeches at Associations, or upon public printed ap- 
peals, or upon stockletters. That means, too, that our pastors must 
learn to be depended upon. 

The serious need of our pastors is not that they should know 
more, but that they should drill themselves to thinking together 
and stepping together and working together in doing what they 
know. 

The way to do this is to get the pastors in different sections of 
the State to meet together as often as possible at least two days 
for study and prayer and drill. Our pastors now work apart mostly. 
They need team work. They should meet for this for two days at 
least twice a year. 

Working on this line in these drills and conferences this year, 
we should prepare to have in the year of 1918 in our State about 
ten Pastors' Schools, each to last about ten days. Would it not 
be well for the Board of Missions to begin now to arrange for 
these schools and to provide an extension course free of cost to 
our pastors? 

Voluntary Enlistment. 

This year we have had two enlistment men in North Carolina, 
Brethren Bradshaw and Kendrick. Brother Kendrick has resigned 
and moved to Louisiana. We think it well to continue the work 
of Brother Bradshaw, not confining his work to the West exclu- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 69 

sively, and letting him stress conferences with pastors as his major 
woi'k. 

Along with this, it would be well to ask one hundred and fifty 
of our pastors to volunteer to give at least one week to protracted 
meetings and enlistment work with mission churches, letting them 
meet in small groups in about ten different places for a two or 
three days' study and prayer and di-ill before they go forth to 
do the work assigned to each on the mission field. Let the Board pay 
all necessary expenses of these volunteers in this work, which 
will be about what it would cost to keep one man on the road at 
work all his time for a year. 

Several blessings will come out of this : 

In the first place, the churches granting their pastors leave of 
absence for this work will get into deeper touch with the actual 
work on our mission field. Then, the study and drill and prayer in 
these preparatory conferences and the experience of actually doing 
the work on the field will get enlistment into the warm blood of 
these pastors and fhey will carry it back to their churches. Be- 
sides, in these preparatory conferences we shall lay the foundation 
of Pastors' Schools, like unto those which are working such won- 
ders in Alabama, in which another year we can arrange for at- 
tractive extension courses of study for a few days. We shall likely 
discover in this way among our pastors men gifted of God for this 
enlistment work who will ever afterwards be ready to help other 
pastors conduct meetings of this kind in their churches, thus build- 
ing enlistment into our evangelism and pastoral work. 

If we can work out this plan successfully we can cover our 
whole State Mission field in the first three months of next year 
with a protracted meeting and an every-member canvass in prac- 
tically every church asking for aid ; then the monthly appropriations 
to these chuiches may be reconsidered in the light of the reports 
from these meetings and canvasses : likely several thousand dol- 
lars will be released from churches strengthened toward self-support 
for supplying needs at other points. 

Unless we mistake the direction and the force of the deeper cur- 
rents in the life and thought of North Cai-olina Baptists, the hour 
has struck for a 

Great One-Mission Campaign. 

For all lines of our mission work — State, Home and Foreign Mis- 
sions all— $140,000 for all these by April 30 ! 

We are not yet prepared to budget all the work of our Baptist 
State Convention, as they are doing in other States. But this will 
be a conservative step in that direction. It is budgeting one depart- 
ment of our work. The budget plan cannot advance faster than 
the givers are led to see the different departments of our work 
as vital parts of a whole. 



70 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTIOX 

This campaign will do more than anj-thing else can possibly do 
to get oui- people to see all our mission work as one great ap- 
pealing, compelling unity. 

If we will put our hands to it in the right way and give our 
Lord the chance to lead us and help us, we can begin right here 
in this Convention and push this enterprise to a glorious end by 
the meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention. That would meet 
all our mission obligations for next year and give us a chance in 
the fall to get Christian Education really on the hearts and con- 
sciences of our people for the first time and to begin in dead 
earnest to take adequate care of our Baptist schools. 

Nineteen hundred churches are waiting for appeals before they 
give anything at all to missions. But with tliese very churclies our 
present method of appeals have lost much of their force. Our 
calendar of appeals has become a monotony to them. They respond 
from custom, not from conviction. Many of our givers pay very 
little attention to our work. 

Launching this campaign will be a large enough thing to get their 
attention. It will sound a new note in wliich are mingled all the 
familiar tones of our old appeals for State Missions, for Home 
Missions, for Foreign Missions. 

We can begin this campaign riglit liere on tlie floor of this Con- 
vention right now. For four months we can press this battle to 
a finish. The Orphanage, about free of debt, can lend us its field 
force for sixteen weeks in this movement, in tlie hope that a 
calendar of four tfionths may thus some day be given each year to 
Social Service. All our college presidents and our Secretary of 
Education and the principles of all our schools, seeing the ultimate 
success of this plan will give Christian Education a place on the 
calendar at the harvest time of the year, will take the field and 
help us make this thing a success. 

Besides, we have a $30,000 start in this race, for that amount has 
already been sent for Home and Foreign Missions since the last 
session of the Southern Baptist Convention. 

This is a tlioroughly safe proposition. For if we raise by the 
last of April only wliat we usually raise for Home and Foreign 
Missions we are in as good fix as ever, for the fall months are 
still wide open for missions again; but this fundamental progress 
will have been made, sometliiug of a sense of the real unity of 
all kinds of our Southern Baptist Missions will have been devel- 
oped in the minds of our people. On the other hand, if by the 
tliirtieth day of April, 1917, we can raise as mucli for missions 
in North Carolina as we raised this year for Home and Foreign 
Missions and for the Foreign Mission Debt, we shall be able to 
give as much to Home and Foreign Missions as we gave last ; 
and, besides that, we can pay State Missions out of debt on 
"May 1 and stop the running of interest for seven months. But 



MINUTES OF SESSIOX 1916 71 

again, if we cau raise the North Carolina apportionment for Home 
and Foreign Missions, and even half of what we shall need for our 
State Mission work, the sure contributions of the women and what 
will come in the fall for State Missions from many churches from 
force of habit will almost surely lift State Missions clear of debt by 
the next Baptist State Convention. 

It is practically sure that this One Campaign for all Missions 
cannot fully succeed the first year ; for it could not be carried to 
the Associations the first year. But progress can be made on it the 
first year. And it can be made a thorough success the second year 
and built pei'manently the third year into our denominational life. 

Ill— Recommendations 

Your Board awaits the instruction of the Convention on the fol- 
lowing recommendations : 

1. That a Committee be appointed by the Convention to study 
the question of colportage in North Carolina, and if practicable 
and desirable, formulate a plan for carrying on this work in our 
State and report a year hence. 

2. That our Mission Avork in North Carolina be laid out next 
year on a basis of $140,000: $55,000 for Foreign Missions, $37,500 
for Home Missions ; $47,500 for State Missions, not including 
$2,750.00 for Sunday-school Missions, and exclusive of Associational 
Missions with instructions to Corresponding Secretary to include 
Associatonal Missions in a supplementary report to the Convention 
next year. 

3. Tliat the Board be advised by the Convention to reorganize 
or increase its office force so as to keep thorough daily, weeldy, 
monthly and quarterly indexed records of the contributions of each 
church and each Association and each agency in each church for 
each object of the Convention : further that the Home Mission 
Board and Foreign Mission Board be requested to report each month 
all receipts sent direct from North Carolina churches so that this 
record may be made complete. 

4. That the Convention instruct its messengers at the next South- 
ern Baptist Convention to pledge North Carolina for $55,000 for 
Foreign Missions and $37,500 for Home Missions. 

5. That $10,000 l^e set aside this year for church buildings and 
that it be made the policy of the Board to put from $3,000 to $5,000 
each year into an adequate church building in some educational 
centre until a good plant and a strong Baptist pastor are sus- 
tained in touch with all our larger student bodies in the State. 

6. That the Convention endorses the changes in method of dis- 
tributing State Mission Funds which the Board of Missions pro- 
poses in this report. 

7. That the Board be instructed to encourage as many conferences 



72 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

of our pastors and church workers at as many points as prac- 
ticable this year ; that in these conferences foundations be laid 
for the organization of ten simultaneous ten-day schools for an 
early date in 1918, and that the Board be instructed to arrange and 
finance an extension course for these schools next year, awaiting in- 
structions of our next Convention as to the amount to be expended 
in this work. 

8. That the Board be instructed to secure, if possible, one 
hundred and fifty pastors this year who will voluntarily give at 
least a week of enlistment work on the State Mission field, attend- 
ing a two or three days' conference in their part of the State 
preparatory to going forth to do this work: that the Board be instruct- 
ed to pay all incidental expenses of such work and of the prep- 
aration for it ; also that these conferences of preparation for this 
work be organized wherever practicable into Pastors' Short Schools 
to be supplied after this year regularly by the Board with ex- 
tension courses. 

9. That the Convention instruct its Board to begin at once a 
Campaign to raise, through our regular mission work, by April 30, 
$140,000 for State, Home and Foreign Missions ; in this campaign all 
contributions designated for State Missions, for Home Missions, for 
Foreign Missions to go strictly to designated object, and all con- 
tributions designated simply for Missons to be divided approximately 
3313-14% for State Missions, 39 4-14% for Foreign Missions, and 
26 11-14 % for Home Missions. 

On the whole, we are grateful for the use that our Lord has 
made of us this year. Next year we yearn to let Him put 
us to larger use. We would do His work in His way. Let Him 
teach us every way we can learn. Let us follow him wherever 
we can go. We can lay no safe plans for another year without 
His wisdom. We trust the loyal Baptists of North Carolina. We 
are not afraid to undertake to do what they tell us to do, with our 
Father to help us. 

So ends the chapter of this year. Now we turn a new leaf. The 
blank page of the new year is spread before us. Tell us, brethren, 
in the fear of God and the faith of Christ what to write therein.

[APPENDIX B] 
Report of the Board of Education. 



We ofifer this, our second annual report, with a deep sense of 
gratitude to God, who has crowned the year with goodness and 
has graciously signalled His approval of our last great movement 
in His name. Nor can we forbear making grateful acknowledgments 
to our brothers and sisters throughout the State, who, with the 
prospect of a thousand-dollar debt only a week or two before the 
close of the year, and under heavy pressure from the appeal for 
State Missions, rallied so splendidly at the last that they increased 
their last year's contributions to Education by nearly forty-five per 
cent, and turned a debt into a balance of nearly $700.00. God be 
praised for the grace given unto them; and all honor to our noble 
pastors and people that they received not this grace in vain. While 
the service is sometimes hard and oftentimes disheartening, one 
rejoices that he is counted worthy to labor with such a people. 

MANNER OF RAISING CONTRIBUTIONS. 

Towards the close of last year, when a debt seemed inevitable, 
appeals were made to individuals throughout the State to come to 
our rescue. But although in similar peril this year, our only ap- 
peal has been to the pastors and churches. It was felt that our 
people in general should be brought to realize as clearly and as 
speedily as possible that the responsibility for this work was on 
them. This was the burden of the speeches during the campaign 
throughout the year, and it was believed that it would be better 
even to report a debt than to weaken this appeal by seeming to 
transfer the responsibility to a few individuals. The contributions 
reported may be taken as the response to this appeal. This re- 
sponse indicates that many of our people are beginning to realize 
and accept this responsibility, and that they will endeavor to meet 
it. 

PLAN OF OPERATIONS. 

Realizing the exceeding importance of getting and keeping our 
brotherhood throughout the State in touch with the whole work of 
the Convention, the representatives of the various departments of 
that work met under the call of Secretary Johnson early in the 
year and planned to have each object presented to every one 
of the sixty-four Associations if possible. In pursuance of this 
plan, by utilizing the presidents of our colleges as far as prac- 
ticable, and a few other brethren when necessary, the Board of 
Education was represented at fifty-eight of our Associations, and we 
were kept from attending a few others by the floods. Your Corre- 
sponding Secretary attended in person sixteen of these bodies during 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 79 

the year, and also visited fifty-two churches and one union meeting. 
It is our purpose to operate under the same plan next year, and 
thus seek to awaken and enlist our entire Baptist brotherhood. 

THE board's policies. 

Following the example of the old Board, whose chief effort was 
directed toward supporting our young ministerial students at Wake 
Forest and the Seminary, the present Board has assumed that it 
was the wish of the Convention for them to make that object their 
first concern. Accordingly, after applying all designated funds 
according to the wishes of the donors and meeting overhead expenses, 
they have applied the rest of the funds so far received to this 
one object ; and in fact, have had nothing left over for any other 
object. 

They have also assumed that the Convention desires no young 
man turned away from college or Seminary who gives satisfac- 
tory evidence of a divine call into the Baptist ministry. So they 
have set no limit upon the authorities at the college or the Seminary 
as to the number of such applicants that either should receive 
We are glad to report that so far we have been able to meet the 
reasonable requirements of all such students. 

Moreover, it having come to our knowlege that a number of young 
women enter Meredith and Chowan everj' year with a view of pre- 
paring themselves for woi-k on the foreign field, the Board decided at 
its annual session last June to extend to the student volunteers in 
those two institutions the same measure of assistance it has been 
giving to young ministers. There are five such young women now 
enrolled at Meredith, of whom two need our assistance and probably 
a few at Chowan. There are also enrolled at Wake Forest this year 
seventy-four young ministers and two prospective medical missiona- 
ries ; of these sixty are under the care of the Board. There are about 
thirty North Carolina students at the Seminary this year, nine- 
teen of whom are receiving aid from the Student Fund. 

It is understood, however, that in case of failure to pursue the 
work contemplated, any beneficiary so failing is required to refund 
to the Board all amounts expended on him. 

Under instructions from the Convention, the old Board of Edu- 
cation devoted two-sevenths of all funds collected from the churches 
to the Student's Fund at the Seminary, after deducting overhead 
expenses. We assume that you desire this policy continued ; that 
is, of the amount available for our young ministers, five-sevenths 
shall go to those at Wake Forest and two-sevenths to those at 
the Seminary. 

During the past year, wherever he has had opportunity, j'our 
Corresponding Secretary has urged our people to make their col- 
lections for Education on the basis of two-fifths as much for that 
object as they raise for State Missions. While they have failed to 



80 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

reach that proportion this year, as we anticipated, the Board feels 
that we ought not to diminish our request, and ask your endorse- 
ment of that proportion. 

CONDITIONS AMONG OUR INSTITUTION S. 

The table to be printed on page . . of the minutes exhibits in 
detail the general data of our Baptist High Schools and Colleges 
in the State. It will be observed that one of the high scohols, the 
Murphy Institute, has been permanently suspended, from lack of 
support. Of the rest, about all opened the present session with 
increased attendance, in spite of sharp competition with State 
institutions ; and a number report record enrollments. And it may 
be added that the grade and quality of work done by these schools 
continues to excel that done by the average rural State high school. 

The Seminary and Training School at Louisville have entered 
upon another great year, as have also our three colleges in the 
State. Wake Forest shows an increase of twenty-one over last 
year in enrollment to date ; Meredith shows an increase of thirty- 
seven; and Chowan a considerable gain, numbers not given. 

But other conditions are not so favorable. Each of our three 
colleges is hampered by a debt, which, while not threatening, is 
certainly embarrassing. And of our thirteen high schools, ten 
are struggling under financial burdens that in most cases are op- 
pressive, and in the cases of three, threaten extinction. Two of 
these schools, Round Hill and Winterville, last year suffered a 
serious loss, by fire, of their main buildings. Both schools must re- 
build at once or turn away many of their students, and probably 
suspend. 

Winterville received from a generous sister during the year a 
thousand dollars on the liquidation of its debt: and Wingate, under 
a vigorous canvass conducted by Brother E. C. Snyder, collected 
in cash $6,005.00 on its indebtedness. South Fork received $175.00 
from the churches of the South Fork Association. Mars Hill has 
an offer of five thousand dollars from a large-hearted Northern 
brother on condition that the school raise $20,000 more. And Presi- 
dent Moore has practical assurance of a fire-proof library building 
to be erected by a man and his wife. 

It must be added that while these schools are doing excellent 
work in general, not one of them has yet been placed on the State's 
list of accredited schools, chiefly because of their lack of equip- 
ment. These needs must be met as quickly as possible. 

Brother Braxton Craig has in hand the important work of liqui- 
dating the debt on Chowan College; and in this campaign he has 
collected $2,000.00 so far, and hopes to secure enough in subscrip- 
tions to cancel the debt by January first. 

Meredith is hard pressed for dormitory space, so much so that 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 81 

the mauagement was compelled last fall to rent rooms in town for 
a number of teachers in order to make room in the college build- 
ings for the OA'erflow of students. So, unless a new building is 
erected there by next fall, indications now are that the college 
will be compelled to turn away a number of girls. By the will of 
Mr. W. G. Foushee, of Chatham, the college will inherit on the 
death of liis wife an estate of some eleven hundred acres of land 
in that county. 

The varying and pressing needs of our college at Wake Forest 
indicates the steady and vigorous growth of that institution. These 
needs include new class rooms for Modern Languages and Educa- 
tion : a Law building : a Y. M. C. A. building, with accommodations 
for the two Literary Societies ; a new athletic park, and three addi- 
tional professors for the departments of Biology, Modern Languages 
and Political Science. 

A movement is already on foot to secure the athletic park, and 
an effort has been launched to raise money for a Y. M. C. A. 
building. The Trustees recommend the initiation of a campaign 
for the purpose of adding $300,000.00 to the endowment fund. 

THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE. 

In his contact with our pastors and people during the year, your 
Corresponding Secretary has been received everywhere with a gen- 
erous welcome. On all occasions he has been asked to present the 
cause to the people and has been accorded for that purpose as 
favorable an hour as circumstances seemed to permit. And no 
Association or Union visited has declined to adopt such plans for 
next year as the Secretary proposed. So that, while we cannot look 
for any rapid increase in contributions for this object in the imme- 
diate future, we may reasonably expect a gradual and healthful 
development in this direction. 

Meanwhile, the question of entering at once upon a campaign to 
raise half a million dollars for the immediate deliverance and per- 
manent security of all our educational institutions looms near and 
large ; and this question must be met at once. With the consumma- 
tion of such an enterprise and the normal increase in our regular 
contributions that we may reasonably anticipate, our educational 
system would stand erect, strong, triumphant. 

But whatever our decision about that question, those of our pas- 
tors and people whose educational advantages have given them a 
broader vision must lay special stress on education and press col- 
lections for it while the great mass of Baptists are waking up 
And we must be patient with those of our brethren who, having 
been less favored than the rest of us, have seemed slow in awaking 
to the new dawn and unable to grasp the tremendous significance of 
our enlarged educational enterprise.

And we can afford to wait. For unless we have utterly misread 
what seems to be the large print in the record of God's dealings 
in the past, it is as certainly His purpose for His people to eqtiip 
themselves for His service as it is for them to enter His service 
at all. And if this is His plan and we are His people, with earnest 
prayerful and persistent effort on our part, no Baptist believer can 
doubt the ultimate issue.

[APPENDIX C] 
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON SOCIAL SERVICE 



The Convention, at its last session, ordered that a Committee on 
Social Service be appointed, through which Committee all matters 
grouped under Social Service should be reported, and the report of 
the Committee be printed in order to be distributed at this hour. It 
was impossible for us to carry out the instruction of the Convention, 
for two reasons : 

1. We could not secure the information necessary in time to have 
the report printed ; and 

2. There was no fund designated by the Convention upon which we 
could draw to defray the expense of printing. 

We, therefore, present the reports separately, for insertion in the 
Minutes. Livingston Johnson, 

For Committee. 

SOCIAL SERVICE 

Service is ministry to any form of human need. Social service is 
ministry through organized as distinguished from individual effort. 
Baptists have always insisted upon service as an accompaniment of, 
not a substitute for, faith and have encouraged all organizations, 
whether belonging to their denomination or not, devoted to ministry 
to human needs. 

In North Carolina there are two great organizations devoted ex- 
clusively to social service. One of them is the North Carolina Con- 
ference for Social Service; the other is the Southern Sociological 
Congress. The former is a State-wide organization which, through 
its several departments, seeks to gather and disseminate information 
about and encourage devotion to every sort of human need in the 
State. The latter is a South-wide organization. Heretofore it has 
been holding annual conventions in the leading Southern cities. This 
year it has held a series of week-long conferences in about forty 
Southern cities. The first one to be held anywhere and the only one 
in North Carolina was in Winston-Salem, last September. A corps of 
experts in the various lines of social service made a survey of the 
community needs, held conferences with groups of local workers, made 
practical recommendations, and sought to conserve the results of the 
conference by the organization of a local branch of the Congress. 
This conference is to be an annual event. It is the hope of the Con- 
gress that within a few years more every city of any consequence in 
the South will have a local branch organization and hold an annual 
conference with the experts. 

While neither the North Carolina Conference for Social Service nor 
the Southern Sociological Congress is in any sense an ecclesiastical 



86 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

or denominational organization, they are both intensely Christian in 
their sympathies. It is significant that the Southern Sociological 
Congress would not agree to hold a conference in Winston-Salem until 
it had the promise of the unanimous support of the ministers of the 
city. And the moving spirits in both these social service organizations 
are consecrated Christian men and women. 

While it is neither feasible nor desirable that either our Conven- 
tion or our churches should have any organic or even federate con- 
nection with these social service organizations, still the Committee 
submits that our people ought to be encouraged to have a lively inter- 
est and active participation in such organizations. It is important 
that our churches always keep in mind the social mission of Christ 
and it is equally important that our social service organizations do 
not for a moment lose sight of the spiritual mission of Christ. As our 
churches are socialized in the sense of recognizing and undertaking 
their obligations to the physical, social, and mental, as well as the 
spiritual, needs of man and as the social conscience is spiritualized 
in the sense of being impelled to activity by the motive of love, which 
is the spirit that was in Christ, then will religion be vivified in the 
sense of becoming an increasingly powerful agency for righteousness 
on earth and for salvation here and hereafter. 

REPORT OF MINISTERS' RELIEF BOARD 

Almost the first words spoken to me after I became Corresponding 
Secretary for this work were uttered by a young lawyer friend: 
"We lawyers have our 'starvation period' at the beginning of our 
career, but you preachers have your 'starvation period' at the end of 
your career." If it were not for the work of the Ministers' Relief 
Board, the last days of many a faithful minister would be a "starva- 
tion period" indeed. 

Small salaries, large giving out of meager incomes, the cost of fre- 
quent moving, a willingness to work in the corners of the Kingdom, 
limited education, affliction — physical or mental — and the "dead 
line," are some of the reasons why there are ministers among us 
who are in need of financial help. But chief among the reasons why 
the work of this Board is necessary is that ministers as a class have 
refused to let their lives be commercialized. The true preacher soon 
finds that his compassion for souls varies inversely with the thought 
and attention given to money and material possessions. 

Since the preacher dare not become entangled with financial ven- 
tures or thoughts of worldly gain, we may expect the demands upon 
this Board to increase with the years, and there is a sentiment abroad 
in the Convention, and this sentiment is shared by members of the 
Board, that we ought to begin to plan larger things for the future of 
this work, either by endowment or otherwise. 

It is the purpose of this Board to extend aid to every aged or 
afflicted minister who is in want, and whose poverty is the result of a 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 87 

Afe given to the preaching of the Gospel. During the 25 years of the 
Board's existence about 125 needy ministers have received aid. 
There are at present 36 beneficiaries. Most of those who have been 
beneficiaries of the Board have been "more skilled to raise the fallen 
than to rise," but a number of them have risen to distinction among 
us and their names are well known throughout our State and South- 
ern Baptist work. 

While there is increasing liberality toward this work, there are 
twelve Associations that do not give one cent to it, and a number of 
other Associations that give almost nothing. We hope that every 
church in every Association will make some contribution to this work 
and have some part in brightening the last days of those who for 
many years have carried us in their hearts. 

Let there be a great Christmas offering for this work this year. 
Respectfully submitted, 

J. M. Arnette, 
Corresponding Secretary.

REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF THOMASVILLE BAPTIST 
ORPHANAGE 

With .slight variations we make very much the same report we 
presented a year ago. Our number has not increased, for the simple 
reason that we have added no more room. Ninety-three have been 
received and hundreds have been turned away. Out of the five hun- 
dred no death has occurred since our last report. Our health record 
has never been better. 

The work of the school has gone on without interruption. Twenty- 
seven boys and girls completed the tenth grade, but the unending 
ranks are being filled by others equally interesting and promising. 

We have undertaken more definite work in domestic science than 
we have done heretofore. Industrial training has been going on all 
the while, but greater effort is being made to give it a higher place in 
our educational scheme. 

The religious life of the institution has been quickened and deepened 
by a meeting which has just closed, in which our pastor was aided by 
Bro. L. R. Pruett, of Charlotte. The boys and girls are well organ- 
ized in a graded Sunday-school. Two active Baptist Young People's 
Societies are in healthy operation, in which membership is voluntary. 
The largest girls are organized into a Young Woman's Missionary 
Society. This side of the Orphanage life is encouraging. 

We cannot make a definite statement of our financial condition at 
this time. Our fiscal year ends June 15th, in order that our Treasurer 
may make a definite report. But we do not have an annual round-up, 
as do the Mission Boards. Our expense account has no seasons, but 
goes on forever, and grows larger every year. For years we have not 
been entirely out of debt. We are hoping that the returns from this 
Thanksgiving offering will settle all our accounts. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 89 

Last year's report showed a smaller per capita cost of living than 
the year before, only $109 a year per child. But there must be a 
large advance over this amount for the coming year. The current 
fund has been larger than for any previous year in our history. We 
are grateful for this. We confidently expect to see the contributions 
enlarged and increased for the coming year. We expect this without 
special appeals. 

Our crop report is more encouraging than a year ago. At Thomas- 
ville, considering the wet weather, the crop makes a good showing. 
The Kennedy Home farm has done exceptionally well. The figures 
are not yet available, for the reason that the crop has not yet all 
been sold, but there will be a good profit. This does not mean that 
the fifty children down there hare been supported and then a profit, 
but that the farm, considered from a business point of view, is suc- 
ceeding. 

No special building has been done for two years. We do not deem 
it wise to go further in debt for new buildings. But we are greatly 
in need of a kindergarten room. This becomes necessary since the 
addition of the Miles Durham Nursery. We also need better office 
facilities. A small separate building would, perhaps, best meet our 
needs. But our greatest need at once is a church building for the 
Kennedy Home. We had hoped that some individual would hear the 
call and put up this building. The Neuse-Atlantic Association is 
making an effort to do its duty, but they need help. We fear the idea 
has gone abroad that recent bequests have provided for all needed 
buildings for the future. In the first place, these bequests are not now 
available. And in the next place, when they do come in they do not 
provide for school rooms, office building, or a chapel. Here is the 
open door for some generous givers. 

Our General Manager, in his last report, calls attention to the need 
of a swimming pool, and better provision for the play-life of the 
throng of growing, restless young people. We want to urge that these 
things are regarded by those who are best acquainted with the needs 
of the young, not as luxuries, but as necessities. Here is a great op- 
portunity for blessing and cheering the lives of boys and girls who 
are deprived of many of the pleasures enjoyed by other children more 
fortunate than they. 

As we look back over the years, and forward through the years that 
are coming, we thank God and take courage. We acknowledge with 
grateful hearts the favor of God upon us and the hearty, loving sup- 
port of our loyal Baptist hosts.

90 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

REPORT ON TEMPERANCE. 

Your Committee is glad to report that wonderful progress is being 
made in Temperance Reform throughout State and Nation. The 
returns of the November election show that four States — Michigan, 
Nebraska, South Dakota, and Montana^ — adopted State-wide Prohibi- 
tion ; that in California and Missouri the "drys" carried both States , 
outside of the cities of San Francisco and St. Louis ; that in every 
State where the "wets" attempted to amend the laws so as to allow 
the sale of beer, or otherwise weaken the law, they were overwhelm- 
ingly defeated ; that three States, Florida, New Mexico, and Utah, 
elected Governors and General Assemblies on platforms calling for 
State-wide Prohibition by action of the Legislature. These, added to 
the "dry" States, will make twenty-six. The Prohibition elections on 
November 7th have put out of commission over 6,000 saloons, and 
5,000,000 people have thrown off the yoke of liquor bondage. Such 
news should hearten every lover of civic righteousness to press for 
National Prohibition. 

The Temperance forces, under the leadership of the Aati-Saloon 
League, have declared for advanced legislation at this Congress. They 
have asked for the submission of National Prohibition to the States, 
for Prohibition in the City of Washington, and that the Federal 
Government cease to assist the liquor traffic in "wet" States by allow- 
ing the use of the mails for advertising purposes. Your Committee 
recommends that the Convention memorialize Congress for the pas- 
sage of such legislation, and assure the Anti-Saloon League of the 
State and of the Nation that they have our support in all honorable 
efforts to secure this legislation. 

The legislative program calls for legislation to prohibit the delivery 
of any liquor by public carriers within the State, to prohibit the 
storing or keeping of any liquor in social clubs, to prohibit the adver- 
tising in any form of liquor, to prohibit the possession of spirituous 
or malt liquors in any quantity, to prohibit the sale and manufacture 
for sale of wine and hard cider, to make public drinking and public 
drunkenness a misdemeanor, and to call for the confiscation of auto- 
mobiles and other property used in the unlawful transfer of liquor. 
Your Committee recommends that the Convention endorse legislation 
of this nature, and memorialize the next General Assembly for the 
enactment of sucIl 

MEMORIAL TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF NORTH CAROLINA 

The Baptist State Convention, assembled in Elizabeth City, N. C, 
December 8, 1916, do respectfully memorialize your body to enact 
legislation that will prohibit the delivery and receipt of liquor; that 
will prohibit the sale and the manufacture for sale of wine and hard 
cider; that will prohibit the storing or keeping of liquor in any 
amount by any device for any purpose in social clubs or by individ- 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 91 

uals ; that will prohibit the advertising of liquor in any form ; that 
will prohibit the possession of liquor for beverage purposes ; that will 
prohibit public drinking and public drunkenness ; and that will forfeit 
to the State automobiles or other property used in the unlawful 
transfer of liquor. 



[APPENDIX D] 

REPORT DIRECTORS OF BIBLICAL RECORDER 



To the Baptist State Convention of Xorth Carolina: 

In accordance with "The Simpler Plan," adopted last year, it be- 
comes our duty, as it is our pleasure, to present to the Convention 
direct, rather than through a Committee, as heretofore, a report on 
the Recorder. We beg to call attention to several things : 

1. The Recorder and the Convention. — It was in 1833, in response 
to the felt need for a Baptist newspaper in North Carolina, that 
Thomas Meredith founded, at Edenton, a monthly, and named it the 
Baptist Interpreter. Removing to New Bern in 1835 he changed the 
paper to a weekly and named it the Biblical Recorder, later removing 
to Raleigh, which has since been the home of the paper. For more 
than fourscore years, therefore, the Recorder has been a mirror and 
exponent of the thought and life of North Carolina Baptists. It is 
the approved and recognized organ of the Baptist State Convention, 
this body naming its editor, safeguarding its policy, utilizing its 
columns, and having report on it every year. It is distinctively 
Baptist property, being now owned by approximately one hundred 
North Carolina Baptists, who, without any one having a majority of 
the stock, hold it, not for financial gain, but for the good of the Cause 
and for the glory of God. In aim and alignment, it undertakes to be 
fraternally but firmly Baptistic, loyal to Baptist doctrine, devoted to 
Baptist agencies, stimulating to Baptist progress, expressive of Bap- 
tist life. 

2. The Advance in Price — After the most careful consideration the 
price of the Recorder was advanced to ?2 a year on October 1, 1916. 
For this advance there were several reasons absolutely imperative : 
(1) The increased cost of materials compelled it, the price of paper 
alone advancing 115 per cent or more, and thus by this single item 
consuming more than the net annual income of the Recorder. (2) 
The debt on the paper demanded it, the obligation being assumed in 
order to secure the yet inadequate equipment needed to maintain the 
paper which North Carolina Baptists desire and deserve. (3) The 
maintenance of the paper at its present standard necessitated it, for 
otherwise a smaller paper on cheaper stock would have been inevit- 
able. (4) Loss on subscriptions called for it, our loss on subscrip- 
tions in small amounts ranging from 15 cents to $4, reaching an 
annual aggregate of more than $4,000. (5) The Directors and the 
Business Manager — eight brethren who, meeting every month for more 
than eight years, have devoted to the Recorder the requisite time, 
their best judgment, and their wisest effort — found that there was 
nothing else to be done. (6) Loss on advertising required it. our 
advertising income being limited by our circulation and the volume of 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 93 

advertising being reduced at a loss of $3,000 or more by the elimina- 
tion of patent medicine advertisements vpith the expiration of con- 
tracts in force a year ago. (7) The circulation of the paper de- 
manded it, the earnings on the present circulation basis being insuf- 
ficient to meet expenses. (8) The history of the paper justified it, 
the price of the Recorder for nearly seventy years having been $2 per 
annum, though for a time it was published at $2.50, and once rose to 
$3. (9) The experience of other papers approved it, no other State 
Baptist paper in the South now being published at less than $2 a 
year. (10) The stockholders' interest urged it, many of the stock- 
holders actually needing the 6 per cent on the investment which they 
made in the Recorder for the sake of the denomination. 

3. The Field Unreached-:— We are happy to say that our subscrip- 
tion list is remarkably clean and up-to-date, and that in this very 
trying period on newspapers our subscribers are loyal to the Recorder 
in a gratifying degree. But with all this we are barely touching our 
task. There are now 277,000 white Baptists in North Carolina, some 
200,000 of them not reading the Recorder. There are approximately 
75,000 white Baptist homes in the State, at least 60,000 of them not 
receiving the Recorder. There are probably from 3,000 to 5,000 new 
Baptist homes entered by evangelism or formed by matrimony among 
us each year, witliout the Recorder reaching one-tenth of them. We 
had over 15,000 new people to come into our churches last year by 
baptism, and we fear that the ministry of the Recorder is not en- 
listing one in a hundred of them. Scores of our pastors, hundreds of 
our Sunday-school superintendents and church clerks, and thousands 
of our deacons are not readers of the Recorder. In view of these perti- 
nent though rather humbling facts we are certainly conservative in 
saying that the Recorder right now ought to have a stable circula- 
tion of at least 25,000, and that in a few years it ought to be carried 
to 40,000 or 50,000, and beyond. 

4. Our Circulation Manager — Realizing that the denomination has 
vastly increased in numbers, in wealth, in power and influence, and 
that the Recorder should not be left behind in the race to which it 
contributes so vitally and so constantly, the Directors of the Re- 
corder determined to secure as Circulation Manager the very best 
man available — a man who, while gifted in personal solicitation for 
subscriptions, would be able to organize the friends of the paper, and 
with their aid conduct a State-wide circulation campaign with pros- 
pect of large success. With hearty unanimity they turned to Rev. 
C. J. Thompson as the best man for the position. We are delighted to 
say that he accepted and entered upon his work October 1. His rich 
and varied experience, his shepherd heart and pulpit ability, his ad- 
ministrative power, his business capacity, and his wide acquaintance 
among our people qualify him most admirably for his new task which 
we regard as worthy of him, of his high calling, and of the great work 
he has hitherto accomplished as pastor in three states, Financial 



94 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

Agent of Meredith College, Secretary of State Missions in Virginia, 
and as Field Secretary of the Foreign Mission Board. In nothing to 
which he has set his hands has he failed, and if he succeeds (as we 
confidently believe he will) in greatly increasing the circulation of the 
Recorder, he will not only render great service to our people, but 
will also solve one of the hardest of denominational problems and 
will perform one of the most far-reaching of denominational achieve- 
ments. 

5. Plan of Campaign — The plans for the Recorder Movement as out- 
lined by our Circulation Manager are two-fold : First — An Association 
Committee of a few men and women who will give assistance in 
carrying through these plans in their respective Associations. Second 
— To have in every church a Recorder Day, when an entire service 
will be given with these objects in view: (1) To show the value of 
the Recorder to the home, to Christian character, and to every Baptist 
and Kingdom enterprise. (2) At that same service, by the united 
efforts of pastor and people, place the Recorder in every home pos- 
sible. Such an hour on the Lord's Day can be made exceedingly help- 
ful and far-reaching in good results. (3) Appoint the best possible 
committee to canvass the whole church membership thoroughly and 
in a business-like way. 

6. Call for Codperation — Our Circulation Manager has a big task 
before him ; and he cannot do it alone. He will need — and to succeed 
must have — support widespread and unprecedented. Pastors, deacons, 
church clerks, Sunday-school Superintendents, W. M. U. workers, 
B. Y. P. U. leaders, and the rank and file of our churches must lend a 
helping hand if an achieving effort is made from the mountains to 
the sea. 

As every intelligent North Carolina Baptist knows, the Recorder is 
a denominational enterprise which is now passing through a time of 
grave crisis. If it suffers, the whole denomination is bound to suffer 
with it. If it succeeds, every phase of our denominational life must 
feel and share the thrill and joy of its prosperity. 

We shall strive to deserve, and we earnestly crave, the continued 
good wall, endorsement, and cooperation of the Convention in making 
the Recorder what it ought to be and sending it where it ought to go. 

HiGHT C. Moore, Editor. 

J. S. Farmer, Business Manager. 

Carey J. Hunter, Chairman Directors. 

AMENDMENT ADOPTED ON MOTION OF DR. LIVINGSTON JOHNSON. 

In view of the fact that the Biblical Recorder is the most im- 
portant agency in promoting the interests of the Convention, we wish 
to express our cordial approval of the effort, on the part of the 
management, to increase the circulation of the paiier. We respect- 
fully offer the following suggestions to the churches and pastors : 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 95 

1. That each church arrange for Recorder Day some time during 
the first three months of the year, and that on that day the claims of 
the Recorder be presented by the pastor or by someone whom he may 
select for the purpose. 

2. That an active committee be appointed in each church to follow 
Recorder Day with a canvass of the membership for the puri)ose of 
securing new subscribers and renewals.

MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 183 



Statistical Summary 



The prececliug pages are largely a matter of record. The busy 
mail or woman will not and cannot "dig through" them for sum- 
maries. For sucli readers, I venture here to summarize the facts 
of these pages as nearly as I can. 

In closing this, my ninth annual report as Statistical Secretary, 
I wish to thank clerks for tlieir co-operation. I have now, Decem- 
ber 1, the minutes of thirty-two Associations and written reports 
on blank forms from twenty-nine others, leaving year-old reports 
from three, viz : — Roan Mountain, Stone Mountain and Stony Fork. 
Besides this I am using old membership data from seventy-nine 
churches in other Associations. Over three liuudred churches make 
no report or incomplete reports. When the Associational Clerk's 
report is in my otflce in time, I try to reach these non-reporting 
churches. This year there were reports from one liuudred and forty 
such churches. 

Churches and Membership. 

We have sixty-four Associations and 2,161 churches. By using 
data from the three Associations named above and data a year 
old and more from seventy-nine churches in other Associations, we 
report a membership of 277,837. 

There are eighteen churches carried on Associational rolls that 
have not reported membership in two or more years. These possibly 
have a membership of 1,000. The reported gain in membership is 
9,749, and in churches, twenty-five. 

Baptisms. 

We have broken all records except for last year. This year we 
report 16,101. This is 1,802 fewer than last year, but 1,385 moi'e 
than in 1914, which was a record year to that date. There are 
656 churches reporting no baptisms this year. If they had equalled 
the average church that did have baptisms, the total would have 
been 23,000 this year. 

Contributing and Non-Contributing Churches. 

The wise business man considers his liabilities as well as his 
assets. When we make our averages, we consider the "do-nothing" 
churches along with the active ones. A subsequent paragraph will 
show what the contributing churches are doing for the several ob- 
jects. When we study these non-contributing churches, remember 
I have included those whose 1915 membership was used, those with 
no membership reported and those that failed to report to their 



184 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

Association, but did report to me on blank postcards sent out. It 
would be fair to add about sixty to the first group and subtract the 
same from the last one. 

We give the number of churches that gave to the several Con- 
vention objects and those that did not. The first number is 
churches contributing to the several objects, and the last those 
reporting no contributions : To some Convention object, 1809 — 352 : 
to State Missions, 1,577 — 584 ; To Home Missions, 1,509 — 652 ; to 
Foreign Missions. 1542 — 619 ; to Sunday School Missions, 603 — 1,- 
558; to Orphanage, 1,629—532; to Christian Education, 818—1,343; 
to Ministerial Relief, 593—1,208. 

Contributions to Con\-ention Objects. 

The amounts reported for Convention objects are as follows : 
State Missions, $53,586.22; Home Missions, $36,968.73; Foreign Mis- 
sions, $62,057; Sunday School Missions, $3,180.40; Orphanage, $58,- 
278.59; Christian Education, $15,050.26; Ministers' Relief, $5,159.23. 
Total, $234,262.96. This is an aggregrate gain of $26,067.02. In many 
churches for "Sunday School Missions" we get a report for other 
mission money contributed by the Sunday-school. In this way $1,- 
230.07 more was reported for this object than was received by 
Treasurer Durham. It ought to be clear that the above amounts 
are for Associational years including from May to November while 
the receipts of the Treasurer are from November 21 to November 
21. Of course the amounts will not be the same. Still the differ- 
ences are very slight when you remember Mr. Durham does not 
receive any Orphanage funds. 

ASSOCIATION'S Leading. 

We give first and second place in each item. Number of churches : 
Roanoke, 64 ; Neuse- Atlantic, 63. Membership of churches : West 
Chowan, 13,480 ; Chowan, 11,385. Baptisms : Mt. Zion, 681 ; Chowan, 
668. Number of Sunday-schools : West Chowan, 67 ; Chowan, Pilot 
Mountain and Tar River, 64 each. Membership of Sunday-schools : 
Mt. Zion, 8,459 ; Chowan. 8,342. Contributions to State Missions : 
Roanoke. $4,273.90; West Chowan. $3,644.40. To Home Missions: 
Roanoke. $2,969.45; West Chowan. $2.,841.37. To Foreign Missions: 
West Chowan. $4,994.38; Central. $4,103,75. To Sunday School 
Missions : Mt. Zion. $269.22 ; West Chowan, $244.13. To Orphanage : 
West Chowan, $5,673.63; Roanoke, $4,233.51. To Christian Educa- 
tion: West Chowan. $1,440.16; Central. $1,387.49. To Ministerial 
Relief: Mt. Zion, $508.83; Roanoke, $253.68. To all objects: West 
Chowan, $19,072.88; Roanoke, $15,071.00. 



MINUTES OF SESSION 1916 185 

Per Capita Contributions. 

For all Convention objects the per capita is eighty-four cents, a 
gain of six cents over 1915. If we consider only those who give, 
the per capita would be well over $2.00. Fifteen Associations have 
averaged over $1.00 per member as follows : Central, $2.33 ; Roanoke, 
$1.97; Piedmont, $1.78; Mecklenburg-Cabarrus, $1.75; Pee Dee, 
$1.74; Neuse-Atlantic, $1.73; West Chowan, $1.41; Raleigh, $1.39; 
Robeson, $1.36; Eastern, $1.29; Buncombe, $1.28; Mt. Zion, $1.25; 
South Yadikn, $1.10; Pilot Mountain, $1.09; Flat River, $1.02. Six 
other Associations gave more than the State average as follows : 
Catawba River, eighty-nine cents ; Liberty, ninety-seven cents ; Sandy 
Creek, eighty-nine cents ; South Fork, ninety-eight cents ; Tar River, 
eighty-six cents ; Wilmington, ninety-two cents. 

Other Averages. 

Of the 2,143 churches that reported membership, the average is 
129. Of the 1,505 reporting baptisms, the average is eleven. Of the 
contributing churches to the Convention objects, the average is as 
follows: State Missions, $33.92; Home Missions, $24.50; Foreign 
Missions, $40.25 ; Sunday School Missions, $5.27 ; Orphanage, $35.16 ; 
Christian Education, $18.40; Ministerial Relief, $5.42. All objects, 
$129.50. 

Sunday Schools. 

Our schools continue to grow. There are now 2,123 schools with 
a membership of 221,148. This is a gain of three schools and 6,093 
in membership. There are reported 122 branch or mission schools. 
We probably have no record of membership of over twenty-five of 
these. The others have at least 7,500 in their enrollments. There 
seem to be now 160 churches having no Sunday-schools. Our mem- 
bership ought to grow. There are 635 churches which report more 
enrolled in Sunday-school than are church members. The Sun- 
day-school membership is larger than church membersliip in the fol- 
lowing Associations : Liberty, Piedmont, Raleigh and South Yadkin. 

From Nashville, we learn we now have 3,810 Diplomas, 440 Red 
Seals, 145 Blue Seals, 10 Post-Graduate Diplomas, 3 Gold Seals, 525 
registered organized classes with a membership of 16,499. 

Colleges and Schools. 

We now have three colleges and sixteen secondary schools owned 
and controlled by the denomination. We co-operate with the South- 
ern Baptist Theological Seminary and the Woman's Training School 
at Louisville, Ky. The property of these institutions including en- 
dowment is valued at $3,473,123. Of this amount $1,842,123 is in- 
vested in North Carolina institutions. Last year there were 221 offi- 



186 N. C. BAPTIST STATE CONVENTION 

cers and teachers and 4,560 pupils in these institutions. In all these, 
studies in Bible, in Doctrine, in Sunday School Pedagogj- and Mis- 
sions are urged upon all the student body. 

Besides these 21 institutions, there are four others under private 
ownership and control which are considered Baptist schools. They 
are worth $150,000 and have at least forty officers and teachers and 
1,000 pupils. 

Woman's Work. 

The Woman's Missionary Union now has organized work in fifty- 
three Associations. Forty-eight of these have Associational Superin- 
tendents to aid in the organization of new Societies and to pro- 
mote the work in general. 1212 Societies are actively engaged in 
mission work. The Chowan, Robeson and Eastern Associations lead 
in the number of Societies, having 111, 74 and 75 respectively. 24.3 
new Societies were organized during the past year. 

The contrbutions for 1915-1916 amounted to $46,759.95 for regu- 
lar objects and $6,199.46 for the Judson and Building Fund, making 
a grand total of $52,959.41. This was $7,959.41 above the aim for 
the year. The Central Association was the largest contributor, 
the total amount being $4,233.96. The W. Chowan gave $3,529.20. The 
following Associations each gave over $2,000.00: Mecklenburg-Ca- 
barrus, Mt. Zion, Pilot Mountain and Roanoke. 



LIST OF ORDAINED MINISTERS 



In revisiug this list we have used minutes and written reports from 
61 Associations. In tlie other three we have used 1915 data as far as 
we could. The list is still incomplete. You will find a few names 
without postotfice. The clerks failed to give this. Many pastors have 
changed their postoffices since the meeting of their Associations. We 
nad no way to secure these changes. 

It requires about 600 changes every year to get the list even as 
correct as it is. This includes new names, ordinations, change of post- 
office, removals from the State, deaths, a pastor this year and not last, 
and the reverse of this, etc. 

Of course, there are errors now, but we have tried faithfully to 
make the list correct. Any information leading to accuracy will be 
appreciated. If a minister's name fails to appear, I shall be glad to 
insert it if information is given. If anyone is enrolled who ought not 
to be, let someone give this information also.
